1/ What follows is the story of why I will not be attending #MPSA2020. Here, I discuss the aftermath of my #MeTooPoliSci disclosure, which I discussed last year: bit.ly/GillMeToo. The #thread is long, so please bear with me. #MPSAfail
2/ When I first saw the editorial statement on the @AJPS_Editor website in April 2018, I was devastated. In that statement, my harasser told the #polisci community that what I said about him harassing me was untrue. bit.ly/BuzzfeedStory1
3/ He also indicated that his cooperation with the ongoing investigations with the @MPSAnet, @michiganstateu, and @UMich was an attempt to clear his name.

Well, since the email went out to my department, I guess it is official.

This was my last semester working in Academia.

It's been a long time coming and the right decision for me and my family.
Next week I'll start a new adventure as a Quantitative Analyst, still here in Buffalo.

I'll miss my students. I'll miss my coworkers. I'll miss the great political science community.
But after a lot (A LOT) of soul-searching, pro-con lists, chats with my friends & family, and questioning whether I was doing the right thing; I'm sure this is the right move for me. #Academia is a fantastic place, but it isn't the place for me, anymore.

This afternoon at #SPSA2018, I was on a #CWC panel about mentoring across genders. Below, I'll include my comments from the panel. In it, I speak candidly about my #gradschool #metoo moment. @SPSAwomen @SPSAwomen 1/n
In many ways, graduate school is designed to make students feel like impostors. It's a common experience, but it can be particularly damaging for members of groups that have traditionally lacked access to the higher ranks of our discipline. I’ll focus on women here. 2/n
For these folks, the feeling that they have “faked” or “charmed” their way into graduate school (or the #tenuretrack, etc.) can override objective evidence of their own diligence, intellect, and merit. 3/n
