This podcast gives voice to the teaching experiences of faculty of color who've been silenced, marginalized and ignored, their careers destroyed for far too long, most often by the allies presumed to support them. A thriving diverse faculty is essential for a thriving and successful student body, campus and community culture. Faculty of color - find affirmation, validation and empowerment here. Faculty and administrator allies - take note and then take action. Teaching in Color shares how.

    Negotiating For What You Need Part Two

    Negotiating For What You Need Part Two

    In this two-part series, we are going to talk with my bestie, Rochelle L. Woods about the importance of negotiating for the teaching conditions you need, what gets in the way, and the secret to getting over your fear of the “no”.
    Part Two
    In the second episode of this two-part series, Rochelle talks about how you sometimes need to do layers of negotiations to get to the right person; why she never hears “no”; and everything you need for a winning negotiation plan. If you are nervous about negotiating, or believe it will be combative, you absolutely have to listen to this episode. 
    Please check out Rochelle’s website at https://negotiationsolutions.org/, and send her an email at rwoods@negotiationsolutions.org for a copy of the handout we mention in this episode. You can contact me if you need support (or maybe to help you pinpoint exactly which teaching conditions you need to negotiate for!) – chavella@effectivefaculty.org

    In this two-part series, we are going to talk with my bestie, Rochelle L. Woods about the importance of negotiating for the teaching conditions you need, what gets in the way, and the secret to getting over your fear of the “no”.
    Part One
    In the first episode of this two-part series, I ask Rochelle to share the reasons people don’t negotiate or advocate for what the teaching conditions they need to remain at and thrive at their universities. She also shares how she helps people get over their reluctance and negotiate for what they need.

    The Myth of Lemmings (& the semester start)

    The Myth of Lemmings (& the semester start)

    At the start of every term, like a lot of faculty of color, I have a feeling of dread. But this past July, I decided to do something different, and I had the calmest start of term of my entire academic career. I want to share my secrets with you in this episode so you too can develop a strategy for a better start of the term. I encourage you to listen right to the end, because I share something that may surprise you (not to mention the juicy bit about my boyfriend I drop in the middle!)
     
    Need some additional resources on why it’s so important to develop a better strategy to start your term?

    Mistakes Universities Make When Trying to Retain Black Faculty: Part Four

    Mistakes Universities Make When Trying to Retain Black Faculty: Part Four

    Mistakes Universities Make When Trying to Retain Black Faculty: Part Four
    In this series, we are going to talk about the mistakes universities make when they are trying to retain Black faculty; why it matter (especially now); and what you can do right now (as in today) to change it.



    Part Four
    In the fourth and final episode of this series (you can listen to part one here) I talk about the fourth big mistake that campuses are making that is driving away their Black faculty. This one is really rant-worthy. 
    I’ll talk about how institutions can avoid this mistake, and an important resource – see below – to help BIPOC faculty deal with the problem in the meantime.

    Part Three
    In the third episode of this series (you can listen to part one here) I talk about the third big mistake that campuses are making that is driving away their Black faculty. It happens right at hiring, and it immediately communicates that we are going to have to face challenges without institutional support.  
    I’ll talk about how BIPOC faculty can deal with this mistake, and how allies and administrators can deal with (and prevent) this mistake.

    I’ll talk about what the problem is, why it is a problem, and what you can do about it. I’ll also talk about a recent high profile example of failing to retain Black faculty, and how it plays out on campuses every day.
