The facts are undeniable—women and people of color are underrepresented as inventors, leaders and entrepreneurs in STEM. But why?
An expert panel (2-3:30 p.m.) will examine the data, systemic causes and implications and discuss their distinct perspectives.
- Holly Falk-Krzesinski, vice president of research intelligence, Elsevier
- Dominique Carter, National Science Foundation
- Deborah Bial, founder and director of the Posse Foundation
- Markus Brauer, UW-Madison professor of psychology
- Jo Handelsman, director of the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery
A set of follow-on breakout sessions (beginning at 3:45 p.m.) will provide practical guidance for how to reverse the trends.
Join us at the Discovery Building for this minisymposium event. Pre-registration is encouraged.
