Pre-Conference Workshop

Gender, Professions, and Organizations Writing Workshop

Sociologists for Women in Society, Winter 2022 Meeting

Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico

Thursday, January 27, 2022 from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Open to Registered Attendees for the 2022 SWS Winter Meeting

Co-organizers:
Melissa Abad, Stanford University, VMWare Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab,
mabad2@stanford.edu
Ethel Mickey, University of Massachusetts Amherst, emickey@umass.edu
Firuzeh Shokooh Valle, Franklin & Marshall College, firuzeh.shokoohvalle@fandm.edu
Sharla Alegria, University of Toronto, sharla.alegria@utoronto.ca

This will be the 21st Semi-Annual Gender, Professions, and Organizations Writing
Workshop. The workshop is a full day of writing, networking, and collaborative project
building. 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 while juggling the challenges
that have emerged with the Covid-19 pandemic. We encourage new and returning participants.
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 blocks of time for
working. Participants may use this time for brainstorming a new paper, putting the finishing
touches on a research manuscript, working with collaborators, doing data analysis, or another
research related task.

The day will be organized as two sessions with time to learn about each other and our work and
time for writing in each block, with a lunch break in between. The last part of the workshop
brings us back together for a brief discussion of the day and future plans. Participants are
welcome to join for the morning, afternoon, or both. We will make a reservation for lunch for all
who wish to join.

Workshop goals:
1. Discuss research projects and writing goals with other scholars in the subfield of gender,
work, and organizations, with particular interest in the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
2. Locate opportunities for research collaboration and/or writing support
3. Meet and network with other scholars over shared research interests
4. Independent writing time

Revised SWS 2022 Winter Meeting COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols – November 3, 2021

SWS 2022 Winter Meeting

COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols

November 3, 2021

We have modified these protocols upon consultation with our legal team and updated CDC Guidelines.

SWS is carefully monitoring recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others regarding the COVID-19 situation as we plan for the 2022 SWS Winter Meeting in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. Meeting attendees will be required to follow all health and safety protocols mandated at the time of the meeting.

We are dedicated to ensuring our attendees have a healthy and safe meeting experience. Based on current information, we are implementing the following protocols:

  1. Vaccinations are a mandated requirement for participation in the 2022 SWS Winter Meeting. We will be collecting proof of vaccination from our attendees in our 2022 Winter Meeting Registration form.
  2. Exemption requests can be sent to swseo.barretkatuna@outlook.com to be reviewed. If approved, proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours prior to arrival to Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico will be required for non-vaccinated attendees.
  3. We understand that minors under the age of 12 years of age who may be participating in our childcare programming are not presently eligible for vaccines. As soon as this changes, we will announce our policy in this regard.
  4. International travelers must follow CDC Travel Guidelines.
  5. According to the latest guidelines of the CDC and New Mexico, we will have a strict mask policy in all indoor public spaces of the meeting hotel. Masks that completely cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly are expected to be worn by all individuals in accordance with CDC recommendations. Check this link for further information on masks. For those who are immunocompromised or who have exemption from the mandate, they will be asked to wear masks both in indoor and outdoor public spaces. The use of masks outdoors by fully vaccinated attendees will be left to their best judgment.
  6. Social distancing will be recommended. Seating will be set up accordingly for all indoor and outdoor events, including receptions and SWS organized meals so when masks are taken off to eat or drink, we will still be distanced.
  7. The hotel staff will follow strict health and safety protocols, and the audiovisual support team will ensure cleanliness of microphones and other equipment.
  8. Hand sanitizing stations will be set up throughout the event spaces. Moreover, attendees must follow thorough hand washing CDC recommendations.
  9. Childcare services and lactation rooms will follow similarly strict health and safety policies.
  10. Meeting attendees will be asked to sign a COVID-19 waiver that will be part of the 2022 SWS Winter Meeting Registration form.

We will all play a role in keeping our meeting as safe as possible, so we expect attendees to be responsible and caring, including when leaving the hotel. If adjustments must be made due to changes reported by the CDC, we will communicate them promptly.

Please share any questions with SWS Executive Officer, Barret Katuna, at swseo.barretkatuna@outlook.com.

Today, Wednesday, October 20th, 2021 is International Pronouns Day

________________________________________________________________

Today, Wednesday, October 20th, 2021 is International Pronouns Day. 

What is it?

International Pronouns Day is an opportunity to educate ourselves and others about the importance of using the pronouns that an individual identifies as reflecting their gender identity. Secondly, it supports the work we do to normalize sharing and using pronouns.

“International Pronouns Day seeks to make respecting, sharing, and educating about personal pronouns commonplace.”  – International Pronouns Day Website 

Why is it important?

I cannot say it better than the IPD website already does: “We think [using someone’s chosen pronouns is] common courtesy and basic to human dignity to do so, like calling someone by their name.”

What Are Pronouns” (video) 

How can I participate?

You can read and share the resources below or, for other suggestions on how you can participate, visit the International Pronouns Day website

In order to normalize sharing pronouns, we need more than one day! While participating today is important, be sure to use the following resources to sustain the work around normalizing pronouns.
