How to Be a Male Ally to Women in STEM - Dr. Christopher Kilmartin

Thu, Feb 11, 2016, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Although women have made considerable progress in entering STEM fields, they continue to be an underrepresented minority, and the male-dominated cultures of these fields can pose challenges to their inclusion. Most men are respectful of women and want to be welcoming and inclusive, yet many are unsure about how to do so. In this presentation Dr.
