Evidence shows that women are less self-assured that men and that – to succeed – confidence matters as much as competence

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

In this meeting we will discuss the confidence gap that exists between men and women. Lack of self-confidence in women impedes their success in science. What is the source of this lack? How does it impede success? What can we do about it? The basis for this discussion will be an article in The Atlantic by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. It will be helpful for the discussion to read this ahead of time.

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!

Please spread the word about these workshops.
