COS Connects: Women in Science

Research has found that women in STEM fields publish less, are paid less for their research, and do not progress as far as men in their careers. Despite progressive momentum toward gender equity, family decisions, financial considerations, workplace cultures and discrimination have shaped and continue to impact the careers of women scientists.

COS Dean of Equity Randall Hughes, Associate Director of Academic Programs, Linda Ayrapetov, and Dean Hazel Sive led a panel discussion with the 2021 recipients of the Advance of Women in Science Scholarships, as well as Assistant Professor Sara Constantino and Assistant Professor Hannah Sayre, on equitable, inclusive and safe workplaces for women in science.

This event is part of the College of Science Connects: The Good Power of Science series. Originally aired on March 9, 2022.
