On February 21st, the Disrupting Career discussion group will be hosting its first-ever faculty guest speaker, Dr. Nancy Reichman from the Department of Sociology. Much of Dr. Reichman’s research examines barriers and opportunities for women’s economic opportunity, considering multiple systems of oppression related to both identity and policy domains. For over two decades or more, she has investigated the conditions for income inequality in the legal profession. More recently, she is looking at the challenges of low-wage workers who navigate erratic scheduling and the lack of paid leave policies.
Dr. Reichman will briefly discuss her research on women and careers, and following her talk a guided discussion will be facilitated allowing all attendees the chance to discuss her talk and related topics.
Registration is not required for any “Disrupting Career” event, but it is highly encouraged for this guest speaker event as registration helps us ensure that we will have enough space for all to sit. Note that the venue will change to accomodate a larger audience if needed, so registration also ensures that you will receive a reminder email in the event of a venue change.

Is professionalism a normative construct? How do I deal with wage inequality? Why do I feel pressure to hide my marginalized identity at work? If you’ve asked these and similar questions, this group is for you. “Disrupting Career” is an informal discussion group open to the DU community focusing on topics relating to social justice, intersectional identities, economic uncertainty, and other “big issues” as they intersect with career development and life after graduation. Come chat with us, find solidarity, or just share what’s going on in your life as it relates to what comes next after DU. Open to students and DU community members from any major or field of study; you are welcome to join at any point during the quarter.
