Race and equity in higher education : A harder path for Indigenous academics
Fredericks, Bronwyn L. (2009) Race and equity in higher education : A harder path for Indigenous academics. National Women's Journal Frontline, 17, pp. 14-15.
Our experiences as Indigenous academics within universities often reflects the experiences we have as Indigenous people in broader society, yet I am still surprised and angered when it is others working in higher education who espouse notions of justice and equity with whom we experience tension and conflict in asserting our rights, values and cultural values. At times it is a constant struggle even when universities have Reconciliation Statements as most of them do now, Indigenous recruitment or employment strategies and university wide anti-racism and anti-discrimination policies and procedures.
