Women, salary talk are panel’s topic
In “Women, Negotiation and the Academic Marketplace,” a panel looks at how scholars are valued where they work and in the larger culture, using salary and negotiations as criteria.

The brown bag discussion, sponsored by the Academic Exchange and the President’s Commission on the Status of Women, takes place Tuesday, May 6, in Room 355 of the Dobbs Center at noon.

Issues to be explored include how women faculty negotiate the tension between rewarding longevity at an institution and rewarding professional accomplishment, and how Emory is negotiating it.
