Gender Scholar & Speaker

Amplifying voices for global gender justice.

My Experience

As a professor and global scholar with over 15 years of experience researching and teaching in communities around the world, I engage regularly with audiences for whom gender scholarship is unfamiliar territory or may be considered controversial.  I've learned how to talk about gender in meaningful ways with diverse audiences and I have experienced the fatigue of this work.  Utilizing “feminist curiosity” as a framework in my public speaking, I help gender-based organizations shape effective strategies to combat burnout.  

My Work

Making the world a better place is exhausting!  You know it because you've experienced it.  Let's talk about strategies that help you engage in difficult gender conversations and avoid the fatigue that so often accompanies "gender work."  I share research about the gendering of burnout and techniques for reclaiming your work in 2019 and beyond.
