Speaker/Participants: 
AAUW webcast - streamed by Women's Studies

American Association of University Women (AAUW); webcast streamed by WSP

In an era when women are increasingly prominent in medicine, law, and business, why are there so few women scientists and engineers?

Drawing upon a large and diverse body of research, AAUW’s report provides compelling evidence of environmental and social barriers—including gender bias, stereotypes, and the climate within college and university science and engineering departments—that continue to limit women’s participation and progress.

 

Presentation of findings will be followed by a discussion among invited experts at the live event on how to move this important research to practice.

We hope you will be able to join us online.

 

Program moderator: Linda D. Hallman, CAE, AAUW Executive Director

Campus sponsorship by HESA.

 

The University of Pittsburgh Women's Studies Program will stream this AAUW webcast.  Light brunch will be provided. This event counts for Outside the Classroom Curriculum credit.
