Science and engineering are the keys to a globally competitive nation, yet we are not taking advantage of the full talent pool because of the barriers and biases that women in these fields face. My goal is to reduce those barriers and strengthen our STEM fields through both local and national action.
Current research projects: participants needed!
“Until women can feel as much at home in math, science and engineering as men, our nation will be considerably less than the sum of its parts. If we do not draw on the entire talent pool that is capable of making a contribution to science, the enterprise will inevitably be underperforming its potential.” —John Hennessy, Susan Hockfield and Shirley Tilghman (source)
