CGO Hosts African Higher Education Leaders

Through a renewed grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Center for Gender in Organizations continues to work with the leaders of gender equity efforts in five Sub-Saharan African universities. In April 2012, CGO hosted a meeting of the African Universities Gender Resource Network (AUGERN) in Boston where members shared updates on gender mainstreaming at their respective institutions and received further leadership training. While in Boston, the members were special guests at the Simmons College Leadership Conference. The AUGERN project is headed by Patricia Deyton, Director of the Center for Gender in Organizations at the School of Management assisted by CGO Coordinator, Sabitha Salzmann. SOM faculty members, Stacy Blake-Beard, Mary Shapiro and Spela Trefalt, provided workshops to the Network scholars during their week at the SOM. The Network is planning extensive publishing covering their 10 year journey toward gender equity.
