This roundtable will outline possible shifts in practices and methods to address systemic gender inequalities in our field and at our institutions. We will focus on ways in which we can work together to promote equitable and fair practices in professional development and mentoring in Asian Studies. Kathleen Cruz Gutierrez, a University of California-Berkeley PhD Candidate in South and Southeast Asian Studies, will discuss the best practices for retaining students who have faced sexual harassment including faculty-graduate student mentoring and student-student support services in the midst of ongoing Title IX crises. Laura Lee Junker, professor of Southeast Asian Anthropology at the University of Illinois at Chicago and adjunct curator at the Field Museum, will speak on gender equality as codified in federal law through the lens of EEOC complaints and mentoring others through gender discrimination and sexual harassment. Colleen Laird, assistant professor of Japanese Film and Popular Culture at the University of British Columbia, will address gendered negotiations in contingent faculty positions. Sharalyn Orbaugh, professor of Asian Studies and Associate at the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality, and Social Justice at the University of British Columbia, will offer advising and mentoring suggestions designed to ameliorate systemic inequities and foster success for women and gender-queer students. Enhua Zhang, associate professor of Chinese literature and Cultural Studies at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and Chinese Undergraduate Advisor, will present mentoring advice for Asian women in academia. After these brief presentations, the roundtable will open for audience perspectives, with the aim of generating ideas for future action.
