Bias & Beer: Conference Edition – 5/23

Bias & Beer: Conference edition
Wednesday May 23 6 pm
MCZ 440 (HUCE Seminar room) 26 Oxford St, Cambridge, MA
RSVP here!

Does it ever irk you when conveners let the speaker go WAY too long? Or when you’re sitting in your department weekly seminar and the speaker is getting constantly interrupted? Join HGWISE and HGWISEGUYS to talk about the role of gender and race in these talk dynamics!! An analysis of a Canadian geoscience conference provides an analysis of collected data regarding participation, behavior, and the division of scientific labor. There is a lot to unpack here, and something tells me that the lessons will carry easily across scientific disciplines!
