a bit about me:
Brittany Dernberger is a friendly Midwesterner who couldn’t break her habit of waving at other runners until she lived in Washington, DC for almost a year. She previously served as the Assistant Director of Grand Valley State University’s Center for Women and Gender Equity, where she spent most of her time getting students off campus to explore gender justice in their local communities and in South Africa. Brittany obtained her PhD in Sociology from University of Maryland, where she studied gender, jobs, and economic inequality. Her research has been featured in outlets such as The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Ms. Magazine. Brittany currently supports sexual assault research at the Department of Defense, and is committed to leveraging research for social change.
