1/ If you haven’t seen it yet, one of the most important educational memos of my lifetime was just released by the @CalCommColleges today.

#AB705
@CalCommColleges 2/ Building on legislation championed by @CollegeOpp and @ASM_Irwin, it summarizes a new beginning for understanding the capacity of #comm_college students & their actual preparation for college, & formalizing their right to progress naturally in their academic coursework. #AB705
@CalCommColleges @CollegeOpp @ASM_Irwin 3/ Together, this helps cement the emerging and truly revolutionary new understanding of #comm_college students (and students in #HigherEd generally) and appropriate placement and support for students as they begin college. #AB705

1/ Hello! Fellow #disability activists, I wrote a piece on disabled students and tech and TRUST. katieroseguestpryal.com/wp-content/upl… #highered #tech @cjp_still @sfdirewolf
@cjp_still @SFdirewolf 2/ “Being a child...is to be nearly
completely powerless. Adults don’t believe you, they don’t listen to you—they don’t give your words much credibility at all. When being young intersects with being disabled, everything regarding credibility is worse.”

“Lack of diversity persists among teaching staff at Canadian universities, colleges, report...wage gaps for women and racial minorities entrenched with little change over a decade...number of Black university teachers has barely budged in 10 years” #cdnpse thestar.com/news/gta/2018/…
Good to see CAUT release this report, building on our original scholarship in The Equity Myth: Racialization and Indigeneity at Canadian Universities (2017). Faculty assocs, like senior admins, have been slow to address equity, esp racial equity, biases, bullying etc. It’s urgent
3)In this 2018 Academic Women’s Association study I show that there is also a significant diversity gap in Canadian university leadership, with astonishingly few Black and Indigenous ppl: “The Diversity Gap in University Leadership 2018” #cdnpse #highered uofaawa.wordpress.com/awa-diversity-…

If #scicomm is your primary occupation, which background do you have ?
If research is your primary occupation, what kind of #scicomm/outreach are you mostly involved in?

There are specific forms particular to publishing and higher ed, the two UK industries I know best.

And if you missed the appalling, shameful results of the report on #GenderPayGap in publishing, I suggest you go look it up

1. While revelations about sexual misconduct and assault are grabbing entertainment and political headlines, #HigherEducation leaders should be asking themselves about their own institutions.
2. There are over 3000 4 year degree granting institutions in the country and 1700 2 year institutions enrolling roughly 20 million students. Title IV institutions employ 3.9 million individuals.
3. @AAUniversities' 2015 climate survey showed that 23.1% of female undergraduates experienced "nonconsensual sexual contact by physical force, threats of physical force, or incapacitation since they enrolled at their university."
