The Second Shift

Our first Feminist Fireside Chat from May 2020 featured speaker Jennie Weiner, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Connecticut and host Julie Underwood, Susan Engeleiter Professor of Education Law, Policy, and Practice and former Dean of the UW–Madison School of Education. This discussion concerned the additional burdens of working outside the home while also serving as a caregiver, a role that is disproportionately held by women.

Feminist Fireside Chats are part of the Women’s Leadership Incubator—a gender-inclusive program that welcomes the participation of all allies—coming in July 2021.
