Our June 2020 chat featured the following presenters:
- Lori DiPrete Brown, founding Director of the UW–Madison campus-wide 4W Initiative (Women & Wellbeing in Wisconsin & the World)
- Olivia Dahlquist, Assistant Director of 4W
- Amy Vatne Bintliff, Assistant Teaching Professor, Department of Education Studies, Partners at Learning (PAL) Program, University of California–San Diego.
In this interactive conversation, DiPrete Brown and Dahlquist covered the topic of transformative feminist leadership and its relationship to the 4W Initiative, including time for writing and sharing. Next, Bintliff transitioned to a conversation about teacher wellbeing, bringing a necessary focus to the need for equitable structures for teachers and administrators as well as students.
