Some comments from the wonderful OEP team on the Yale Seminar:
“OEP’s work is changing the way women scholars view themselves. The change in skill sets comes as a revelation; the change in the way they value their work makes way for revolution.” -Janus Adams
“[The seminar] was a reminder of how great the divide between cultural universes (that is, journalism and academia), even when they might seem to have so much in common… I think Katherine [Lanpher's] analogy to learning another language was really apt.”-Annie Murphy Paul
“It was an honor to be among so many brilliant scholars, not to mention OEP facilitators and friends… We managed to create a great blend of thought experiments and skill building, with small group intensives and workshop experiences… I walked away with such a deep trust in the scholars’ knowledge and such a deep yearning to see it make its way out into the wider world.” -Courtney Martin
In addition it should be noted that one of the seminar’s alums, Laura Wexler, had an op-ed published by CNN on Tuesday, the day following the seminar. Congrats Laura!
