March 8 @ noon: Karen Bradley to discuss Gender and Science Educational Pathways
"Thinking About Gender and Science Educational Pathways: What Does Research Suggest?"
Join us for the WWU Connections Brown Bag Series Tuesday March 8th at Village Books, 1200 11th St. Fairhaven, from 12 to 1pm.
Dr. Karen Bradley, a sociologist on the faculty at Western Washington University, will discuss issues surrounding gender and science. Bradley will focus on commonly held beliefs as well as research findings concerning the pathways of women and men within science education and careers, as well as why women are under-represented in math & science. She'll consider these issues within the context of the United States with some reference to other countries. Dr. Bradley has conducted research on these issues for several years.
This event is the final presentation for the Winter 2011 brown bag speaker series WWU Connections, which highlights the expertise of WWU faculty and staff.
Co-presented by the Western Washington University Libraries and Village Books.
