As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Women's and Gender Studies and Wellness and Recreation Services will host a screening and discussion of "The Mask You Live In." This documentary, from the makers of "Miss Representation," follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. "The Mask You Live In" ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.
Following the 90-minute film, Mark Rowe-Barth, Alan Heisterkamp and Michael Fleming will lead a discussion.
This event is free and open to the public. Please note this film contains content that may not be suitable to children under 16.

Russell Guay, Department of Management, will present “To Whom Does Transformational Leadership Matter More? An Examination of Neurotic and Introverted Followers and Their Organizational Citizenship.” Bring your lunch; cookies will be provided.
In a sample of 215 leaders and 1,284 followers, the positive relationship between transformational leadership and organizational citizenship behavior was stronger for those who are introverted or neurotic than those who are extraverted or emotionally stable. Therefore, transformational leaders can guide these employees to perform more OCB despite their tendencies to worry, lack confidence, and be shy and withdrawn.
Xavi Escandell, associate professor of sociology, will present "Gender Gaps in Educational Outcomes Among Children of New Migrants: The Role of Social Integration from a Comparative Perspective."

The film was subsequently picked up by CNN, who will feature the film in an upcoming special.
Student Disability Services will be sponsor a screening of the documentary "Including Samuel." A discussion on inclusion and aiding individuals with disabilities in an educational setting led by Student Disability Services staff wil follow the screening. The film is from the perspective of a father whose son Samuel has cerebral palsy. Here is a short description of the film:
Before his son Samuel was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, photojournalist Dan Habib rarely thought about the educational inclusion of people with disabilities. Now he thinks about inclusion every day. Shot and produced over four years, this award-winning documentary chronicles the Habib family's efforts to include Samuel in every facet of their lives. The film also features four other families with varied inclusion experiences, plus interviews with dozens of teachers, young people, parents and disability rights experts. "Including Samuel" is a highly personal, passionately photographed film that captures the cultural and systemic barriers to inclusion in schools.
