Physics Colloquium: The 17% and The Climate for Women in U.S. Physics Programs

Thursday, April 9, 2015

3:30 PM-4:30 PM

Sharon Stephenson, PhD, Gettysburg College


Sixteen years ago a report entitled “A Study on the Status of Women Faculty in Science at MIT” kickstarted a national conversation about who does science and why. I will focus on what the American physics community has done and is doing to better understand the gender imbalance in our discipline. I will also reach beyond physicists helping physicists and present an overview of recent social science research that can help us understand the slow growth towards physics equality in the U.S.
