How to be a Bitch with Professor's Kim Zarkin and Tamara Stevenson, and the Women of Color in the Utah Legislation: a Changing the Narrative Special 

On Tonight's Changing the Narrative Special:

How to be a Bitch: A Panel Conversation with the Utah State Legislator, Women of Color 
A conversation lead by Tamara Stevenson Ph.D., and Kim Zarkin Ph.D. The panel included:

Recorded on October 8, 2020, this panel is a special edition of the Westminster College course: "How to be a Bitch: (Re)framing the Realities of Women in Leadership." The class is co-taught during summer semesters by communication program chair Kim Zarkin, Ph.D, and chief diversity officer Tamara Stevenson, Ed.D. How to be a Bitch explores how media informs and influences narratives about women (or gender) and leadership, aggression and behavior.

“A verbal assault that New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez experienced from a fellow member of Congress and California senator Kamala Harris being the first woman of color vice presidential nominee by a major political party are among many reasons to gather these Utah women of color legislators,” said Tamara Stevenson, Ed.D., Westminster’s chief diversity officer. “Holding this discussion just one day after the Harris/Pence vice-presidential debate in Utah will provide critical insight into our political and cultural climate.”

Westminster College’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion hosted this event in partnership with KRCL RadioACTive 90.9 KRCL and the Westminster College Chapter of Utah Women in Higher Education Network.
