We didn’t get to address all of your questions about our report Solving the Equation during our launch event, so our researchers wanted to answer a few more queries on our blog. Read more »


Event Description

From the research team who brought you Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics comes a deeper dive into engineering and computing, fields that offer 80 percent of STEM jobs but still boast dismal numbers of women students and workers.

Watch the launch event for Solving the Equation: The Variables for Women’s Success in Engineering and Computing live from Samsung’s Mountain View Campus to find out why women aren’t in these fields — and what we as employers, educators, and parents can do about it.

Send in your questions or comments for the panel and follow along with the discussion using the hashtag #addwomen on Twitter.


Meet the Panel

A panel of experts from the industry and academia, moderated by leading gender-in-science researcher Londa Schiebinger, will discuss the report’s findings and what they mean for anyone who cares about tapping the innovative solutions that half our population offers.

Our panel will include
