Guest bloggers Mary Schone ’10 and Grier Stockman ’09 worked with Library Assistant Ms. MacLeod to put together a special book display now on view in the Baker Reading Room. Both Mary and Grier attended the The Independent School Gender Project Conference 2008: Sowing the Seeds of Change: Women and Girls Making a Difference in the World held at the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, CT. Here’s what they have to say:
Earlier this year, Third Formers, Sixth Formers and faculty were invited to take a survey regarding their experiences studying and working at an independent school. The Independent School Gender Project seeks to gather data that will help to facilitate discussion about gender equity in independent schools. Some of these books on display were included in a book list at the ISGP conference this past summer in Lakeville, CT. Three faculty members and two students attended the three-day event.
During this conference, faculty and students from many different schools from the United States and Canada talked about the discoveries made by the ISGP and about issues that face students and faculty today. We hope this list offers an array of books on many different topics that will enlighten readers about the various issues discussed at the conference.
