Beyond Representation: Data to Improve the Situation of Women in Science
Rachel Ivie, Director of the Statistical Research Center, American Institute of Physics
Monday December 3 at noon in Tutt Science Lecture Hall
Lunch will be served.
Presented by the Department of Physics in collaboration with the FemSTEM Symposium.
Abstract: In order to design and implement effective interventions to improve the situation of women in science, data about key areas in which women experience inequality are essential. To illustrate this point, I will present data about the situation of women in physics and astronomy. While the number of women receiving bachelor’s degrees in physics in the U. S. continues to increase, the number of men is increasing faster. However, the data on representation do not tell the whole story. Data from a global survey show that women do not have access to the same opportunities and resources as men do. Less than ideal relationships with advisors and the need for partner employment contribute to working outside the field, and that these factors affect women more than men. While documenting the numbers of women in science is important, we must also rectify inequality to attract and retain more women in science.
