Committee Work

I work with multiple committees that are passionate about inclusion and diversity in and out of academia. Currently, I serve on a media relations committee for SWS that works with students, early career, and senior academics to promote and celebrate scholarship created by and for diverse bodies and communities. I also cohost the podcast "Feminist Intersections" to showcase feminist research, normalize radical feminist discussion, and enjoy an inclusive space to explore cutting edge issues. Overall, I am committed to and passionate about working with others to create a more inclusive climate inside classrooms, in the sociological community, and through scholarly research.
