Webinar: “Views from the Pipeline: Women of Color in the STEM Professoriate”, 4/27, 1:00pm

Posted: April 25, 2017

As of 2010, women of color represented less than 6% of faculty members with STEM doctorates at four-year colleges and universities. This underrepresentation increases up the career ladder of the academy — at the rank of full professor, women of color constitute only 2.5% of faculty.

Despite public attention focused on addressing this underrepresentation, the voices of women of color who are in the STEM professoriate pipeline — or have exited — are often missing from the discussion.

This live webinar will bring together women of color scientists for an open discussion about the STEM pipeline, including:

  • Are we asking the right questions about STEM pipeline programs?
  • Are STEM pipeline programs responding to the right questions and challenges?
  • What leads women of color to exit the STEM professoriate pipeline?
  • What research questions do women of color scientists suggest social science ask about the experiences and representation of women of color in the STEM professoriate?

Register for the webinar here.

Thursday, April 27, 1:00 PM

Confirmed participants include Dr. Evelyn Hammonds, Barbara Gutmann Rosenkrantz, Professor of the History of Science at Harvard University, and Dr. Jami Valentine, Physicist, Advocate, and founder of the website African American Women in Physics.
