Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The 17th semi-annual Gender, Professions, and Organizations Writing Workshop will take place from 9 am to 5 pm on Friday, August 9th 2019 – the day of pre-conference activities for the American Sociological Association annual meeting in New York City. Originally a workgroup of sociologists doing research on gender and academic careers, scientific workplace organizations, and organizational transformations to promote gender equality, the workshop now includes scholars of gender, professional work, and organizational change. The purpose of the workshop is to learn about the range of work that attendees are doing, to facilitate collaboration and to set aside time for writing. We encourage new and returning participants. If you’ve never come, welcome, and if you have, welcome back!
As a group, we will talk about our current research projects. This will provide information useful for exploring potential collaborative projects. There will also be designated time for writing and research. You may use this time any way you wish: brainstorming a new paper, putting the finishing touches on a research manuscript, working with collaborators, or doing data analysis.
