Gender Equity , Power Structures, and Implicit Bias in Stem
Elizabeth Simmons, University of San Diego

This presentation will start by reviewing data of the current status of gender equity in STEM disciplines and summarizing social science research that illuminates some causes of gender disparities in STEM. With this context established, the focus will shift to how women enter into leadership roles in academic settings, what they experience, and how gender impacts the way they exercise their authority. The final part of the talk will discuss how we can all contribute to changing the face of leadership for the future, to the benefit of all of us in STEM
