On being one of the few female instructors
If anyone knows first-hand how diversity and equity issues have evolved on campus, it’s Adrienne Kertzer. She’s been teaching English at the University of Calgary since 1976, when there were very few female professors. As more women joined the university and took on prominent roles — Kertzer herself was the first female head of the Department of English in 1994 — diversity and equity considerations were pushed to the forefront.
After three years as advisor to the president on women’s issues, Kertzer was been appointed interim director of the new Office of Diversity, Equity and Protected Disclosure in 2014.
