This is the first workshop on Achieving Gender Equity in Science for Fall 2014. The entire schedule can be found here.

Both Men and Women Discriminate against Women in STEM

The first fall AGIS meeting on Oct 1, 2014 at 6 pm in Jenkins 107

The Oct 1 meeting will discuss the following article, which is a seminal study that shows that both men and women discriminate against young women in science:

Science faculty’s subtle gender biases favor male students (2012) Moss-Racusin, C.A., J.F. Dovidio, V.L. Brescoll, M.J. Graham, & J. Handelsman, Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 109: 16474-9

You may find it helpful to read the article in advance. It is available by open access from PNAS:

Pizza and beverages will be served. If you think you will attend, RSVP Karen so she can order enough pizza. It would be a bummer if we ran out of pizza!
