Diversity Science Colloquium Series

Friday, April 5, 2013
4:00-5:15PM
Nelson Auditorium, Anderson Hall

"Double Isolation: How Stereotypes Limit Women's Career Choices and Opportunities"
Dr. Sapna Cheryan, University of Washington

Abstract: Despite having made significant inroads into a variety of traditionally male-dominated fields, women continue to be underrepresented in computer science. Dr. Cheryan's research examines whether stereotypes of computer scientists steer women away from computer science. She further examines how to broaden the image of computer science using environments, role models, and the media.

The Diversity Science Colloquium Series seeks to promote discourse and exploration of the benefits and challenges associated with work, study, and life on a diverse college campus. Speakers communicate the findings of empirical research exploring the impact of race, gender, ethnicity and a variety of other factors at play in diverse communities. The series is open to all members of the Tufts Community and to all interested visitors. The series is organized by the Department of Psychology, with the generous support of The Office of the Provost.
