Lecture: From fixing the women to liberating the men.

Dr. Jennifer Berdahl, Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia
Wed. March, 30th, 4:00-6:00 pm. 
STJ 3014, St. Jerome’s Classroom and Administration Building


Jennifer Berdahl from the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia is visiting U. Waterloo March 29-31 and is giving a university-wide presentation on Wednesday, March 30th on gender in organizations. Dr. Berdahl is the first Montalbano Professorship in Leadership Studies: Women and Diversity at UBC’s Sauder School of Business, and is an internationally recognized scholar in the field of gender in organizations. She has advised Canadian parliament and informed Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in her bestseller Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead. 

In her talk, Dr. Berdahl will examine how various organizations have attempted to deal with gender – from trying to “fix” the women to changing the way that everyone thinks about men and women. Her impressive and influential research has shown that organizations that successfully integrate women are more successful than their competitors.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

COURSE ENROLLMENT

We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total.
