This week on the APL nextED Mini-Pod, Dr. Mangala Subramaniam, Butler Chair and Director at Purdue University, shares her experiences as a professor and administrator advocating and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives for faculty, staff, and students in part one of this two-part episode.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion have become hot topics around campuses worldwide. Each institution continually approaches its commitments to diversity, equity and inclusion in vastly different ways as more studies and data become available. At Purdue University, Dr. Mangala Subramaniam and her colleagues have created DEI initiatives for the campus community to listen, learn and grow.
This week, Dr. Subramaniam joins host Kathleen Gibson to discuss the ways that she approaches diversity, equity and inclusion at Purdue University and how she keeps the people that these policies impact and support the most, involved and heard.
Mangala Subramaniam is Professor of Sociology, Butler Chair and Director of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence at Purdue University, West Lafayette. In her current administrative role, she focuses on providing opportunities to enhance leadership skills and professional development for faculty. Her various publications are reflective of her expanded research interests in the areas of gender and leadership, careers in the academy, and inclusive excellence.
Dr. Subramaniam is the current State Co-Director of the American Council on Education (ACE) Women’s Network of Indiana and was an Associate Editor of Social Problems which is one of the top four journals in sociology. For more information, see www.mangalasubramaniam.com
