    This book is a few years old, but it is excellent, particularly as a way to think about ways to promote anti-racist policies in the academy. It includes 30 essays from different intersectional experiences of individuals working in higher ed. Not only do the authors disclose their personal and painful experiences, they provide a number of solutions for administrators and colleagues about ways to fostering a more inclusive and supportive climate. The only flaw in the book is that it does not cover This book is a few years old, but it is excellent, particularly as a way to think about ways to promote anti-racist policies in the academy.

Not only do the authors disclose their personal and painful experiences, they provide a number of solutions for administrators and colleagues about ways to fostering a more inclusive and supportive climate. The only flaw in the book is that it does not cover a wider range of identities (thinking about Muslim and international colleagues), but it is a great starting point for developing policies and practices to be supportive of intersectional identity in the workplace.

    This is a tough read, in that it’s a long book with detailed stories and lots of scientific backing. But it is so important that we read these stories and try to do better for women, and specifically underrepresented women in academia. Admittedly, I haven’t read the whole book yet, but I plan to continue picking it up a chapter at a time!

    A stunning, intense collection of essays and research about the experiences of women of color in the academy. Although I read it the whole way through, I would suggest it mostly as a reference volume - specifically the end, which discusses steps for institutions, women of color, and allies.

    I've pulled this book out to review during these first stages of mentoring a young woman who studies at the college where I teach. She's considering studies in education and social work, and she is a Woman of Color. What will she be facing in her studies? What is she already facing? How do I stay mindful and intentional in my work with her? I ask these questions again now as I have in the past various times when I've read and reread the essays contained here. These are directly from the experien I've pulled this book out to review during these first stages of mentoring a young woman who studies at the college where I teach. She's considering studies in education and social work, and she is a Woman of Color. What will she be facing in her studies? What is she already facing? How do I stay mindful and intentional in my work with her? I ask these questions again now as I have in the past various times when I've read and reread the essays contained here. These are directly from the experiences and expertise of Women of Color in Academia. Five different categories provide the structure for the various offerings: General Campus Climate, Faculty/Student Relationships, Networks of Allies, Social Class in Academia, and Tenure and Promotion. Too often we dismiss these women outright or indirectly, and that is painful for me to admit being a Woman of Color myself - but always? I wince realizing that I have benefited in various ways because of the complex ways we categorize each other. Have I looked the other way at times? At other times I've felt the sting of exclusion or loneliness yet internalized blame rather than effectively addressed the issues. When we must continue painful conversations about women's rights and opportunities --and that is certainly these days -- we need to learn from courageous women like those who contribute to this collection. Caution: Read this book with an open attitude and a sense of humbleness, especially if you are an educator, administrator, or staff member at a college or university. This is NOT about teaching students or addressing "student problems" (note one section is about Faculty and Students); rather, it IS about how we treat each other as professionals. It is not a comfortable book to read, nor do I recommend reading it quickly. Whatever discomfort you find, you will also find valuable perspectives from articulate, strong, and complex women.
