Why So Few?

Date/Time: 
03/25/2010

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 on how to move this important research to practice.

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

Location:  Room 405, Marvin Center, George Washington University, 800 21st St., NW, Washington DC.  Continental breakfast will be served at 9:30am.

 

Please RSVP for either in person or online attendance by Friday, March 19, as space is limited.
