Speaker: Christianne M. Corbett, Stanford University, Engineering.
Drawing on a large and diverse body of research, Corbett will present recent research findings included in AAUW’s 2015 National Science Foundation-funded report Solving the Equation: The Variables for Women’s Success in Engineering and Computing, on factors such as stereotypes and biases, college curriculum, and workplace environments that help explain women’s underrepresentation in engineering and computing. The session will include recommendations for change for employers, educators, and individuals.
