2002 WIC Session
Keynote Presentation:
"Status of Women Faculty at MIT"  
Karen Klincewicz Gleason
A groundbreaking report on the status of women faculty in MIT's school of science was released in March 1999. Since then, committees on the status of women faculty were established in each of MIT'S five schools. These committees produced a second set of reports released in March 2002. Key findings from the reports will be presented with emphasis on data from the School of Engineering. The methodologies used to initiate and carry out gender equity studies will also be addressed.
