A Little More Conversation…

Shirley again.

Unlike Elvis, we love the conversation here at Theater J.

Re-visiting PHOTOGRAPH 51, we now share clips from the Sunday, April 10th discussion: Women Scientists: Breaking Through the SiO2 silica + sodium carbonate Na2CO3 + CaCo3 Ceiling

That afternoon, we were joined by a stellar team of women scientists, and women dealing with issues surrounding gender in the science world:
• Moderated by Elaine Reuben: Board Member, The Feminist Press, one of founding trustees of Tikkun Olam Women’s Foundation of Greater Washington and a Theater J Council Member
• Catherine Didion: Director of the Committee on Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine (CWSEM) of the National Research Council (NRC) and Senior Program Officer, National Academy of Engineering
• Erika Milam: Professor of Science History, University of Maryland
• Alice Popejoy: Public Policy Fellow at the Association for Women in Science
• Dahlia Sokolov: Staff Director for the Subcommittee on Research and Science Education of the House Committee on Science and Technology

In this first clip, Erika Milam talks about the class she teaches in women in the sciences, and the challenges of retaining women in the STEM fields.

In this excerpt, Alice Popejoy explains the research that the Association for Women in Science has done surrounding the differing ways in which male and female scientists are valued within their communities.

Keep checking back, as I’ll be posting more clips throughout the next week!
