Celebrate International Women in Math Day with Dr. Hilary Bergsieker

Join WiM in celebrating International Women in Math Day with a discussion on "The Social “Threatwork”: Connecting Women's Exclusion from STEM Social Networks to Implicit and Explicit Gender Stereotypes" with Dr. Hilary Bergsieker. 

When, why, and with what effect are women sometimes excluded from informal social networks in STEM fields? Drawing on social identity threat and structural hole theories, a series of studies assess social network dynamics that may limit women's full inclusion in STEM circles. 

Dr. Hilary Bergsieker is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Waterloo, where she leads the Diversity and Intergroup Relations Lab and serves as her department's Program Area Lead for Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism. 

The event will take place on May 12th at MC 5501 from 10:30-11:30 AM. Register here. Everyone is welcome!
