Event Details

In celebration of International Women in Math Day,  Women in Math Committee and Math Racial Equity Committee present: 

Title: The problem with role models
Speaker: Dr. Susama Agarwala
Abstract: In this talk, I present findings on the extent of the biases faced by women in academia. Furthermore, I present a model that explains that a few women being able to break the glass ceiling is evidence of how deep the systematic biases are, not merely a sign of progress.

People of all genders are welcome.
