  • Policies that Influence Gender Balance in STEM

    Tuesday, March 24, 2015 | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by Science Alliance and the New York Chapter of AWIS

    Join the New York Chapter of AWiS and Science Alliance as we discuss the policy initiatives that have been put in place to provide support for gender balance in STEM fields. Topics will include equal pay, work/life balance issues, parental leave policies, mechanisms for the retention of women in science as well as policies that might promote a more representative distribution of men and women in academia. The policy discussion will explore both past and present policies as well as panelist's future vision for policies affecting women in STEM fields. Audience members will also have the opportunity to ask our panelists their own policy questions. As part of the event, we will also explore local efforts to collect data on work/life balance.
