WiSE Faculty Leadership
More on Women STEM Faculty at SU
"Now there are many reasons for this pattern of erosion of critical mass, but I believe that a key facet has to do with failures to make women (and other underrepresented groups) feel comfortable on the inside without checking their identities and commitments (perhaps to family, to community, to collaboration, to interdisciplinarity) at the door."
