persistence + kvetching + small dash PC = CHANGE IN ACADEME!

So I take my victories where I can get them. Here at Anonymous Big University (ABU) there is a group for new faculty members. All of the meetings thus far have been at one of the local bars. I'm all for tipping back a few with people who know who the hell Schutz is, but as a single mom that isn't going to happen for me too often. I mostly confine my beerfests to conferences, when I am not in charge of the kids.

So, every time I got an announcement, I gently mentioned that maybe something for those of us with kids, who might like to meet other academics with kids, might be good.

Fast forward six months. A new organizer for the group has just come in, and she and I are friendly. And: she sent out an inquiry email directly to the membership. Result? HUGE INTEREST in having family-friendly outings.

Yep. That's right. Being a pain in the ass? Has resulted in organizational change, even if not earthshattering, here at ABU.

Are we at the same university? 'cause this exact same thing just happened here at By-the-River U, and now I'm organizing the group. A small blogosphere after all perhaps...

Oh...Delete my comment if you think it compromises your anonymity...this one too...

Hello Sir! I do believe we are at the same university! However, since you don't name it on your page, I don't see that my Secret Bat Identity is in that much jeopardy. Thank you btw for organizing things, I offered to our intrepid new leader who has just received the tiara to organize the parents group if no one else would but I did NOT want to.

See you soon, and it will be neat to meet you IRL. I have bookmarked your blog for as long as I have had this one, and I really enjoy your take on teaching.

Thing is, in many parts of the world, family-friendly and tasting quality beer aren't incompatible.
(I'm not yet a parent and I'm a homebrewer. I also care about informal gatherings among academics to be not only family-friendly but, in fact, community-friendly. Weren't we talking about we-ness?)
