According to Boatman and Razzette, less than 30 percent of the world’s researchers are women, an imbalance that is gradually growing smaller as more women are pursuing degrees in science. But while more women are entering the field, men still hold the vast majority of leadership roles, a gender gap that gets wider at each progressive level of leadership and has shown little change over the years.

This disparity is not just an issue for aspirational women in science, but threatens the success of projects and research advancements. In this lecture, Boatman and Razzette will discuss the business benefits of gender diversity in leadership and address how bias creates wasted potential, keeping women on the sidelines when their talents, knowledge, and perspectives could be triggering breakthrough success. In addition, they will present actionable steps to help women amplify their impact as leaders, and offer specific steps men can take to support gender equity in the workplace.
