Hannah Wakeling | Women in Physics Outreach Project


Friday, March 09, 2018
13:00 to 14:30

We know that for numerous reasons women, racialized and LGBT people are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. In particular physics, engineering and computer science suffer with gender disparity and this problem has been intractable for decades, despite a considerable investment in interventions to retain under-represented people in the field. Join Hannah Wakeling - Women in Physics Outreach Project Coordinator for McGill University’s Department of Physics, and also 1st year Particle Physics PhD student, for this interactive talk where she will consider the status of under-represented people in STEM subjects and discuss problems that hamper equity and diversity, such as imposter syndrome, microaggressions, and more
