Nancy H. Hopkins is the Amgen, Inc. Professor of Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
In this presentation, Professor Hopkins looks back on what has been learned at MIT about invisible barriers that inhibit women's advancement in science and steps MIT took reduce such barriers. She asks whether conscious and unconscious barriers still inhibit women's full participation in science.
Professor Hopkins comes to Brown University as part of our Visiting Scholars Program. This lecture is co-sponsored by the Office of Women in Medicine and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty.
