Powerful women and becoming one yourself

CNNMoney.com released their list of the 50 most powerful women, and once again, I failed to make the list, just like I didn’t win any Nobel prizes this year.

Sigh. You learn to live with these things.

However, I urge you to go over and take a look at these amazing, beautiful, successful women because we all need role models, brazen capitalists or not.*

Towards that end, the Faculty Women’s Interest Group of the American Collegiate Schools of Planning annually prepares a resume book to post on the ACSP website a compilation of the two-page abbreviated resumes of women seeking tenure-earning teaching positions in planning and related programs in North America. Many Chairs and faculty search committees have found previous editions to be valuable in their faculty searches.

This is call for resumes from those with an earned PhD in Planning or in a related field who are just starting their teaching careers. The deadline for receipt of the two-page c.v.’s is October 16th, 2009. If you have any questions, please ask me or Sandi Rosenbloom (rosenblo@u.arizona.edu).

*Given that many of these CEOs are about my age or younger, I may just spend the rest of the day in bed. With some ice cream. Maybe I’ll just reflect on one of my favorite childhood role models, Endora, who never took any crap off of anybody. At least not without turning them into something vile.
