RESEARCH TALK: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Perkins Student Center, 325 Academy Street
The UD Research Office is pleased to once again host a visit from National Science Foundation Program Director Dr. Cassidy Sugimoto on May 20. Dr. Sugimoto is the Director for the Science of Science and Innovation Policy program at the NSF. She will be on campus to host a research roundtable open to any UD faculty member or researcher interested in the SCISIP program. In this informal discussion format, faculty are urged to share their ideas and discuss optimal programs for their research. Dr. Sugimoto will also present on her personal research, Gendered Labor Roles and Rewards in Science.
Gendered Labor Roles and Rewards in Science: Despite progress, gender disparities in science persist. Women remain underrepresented in the scientific workforce and under rewarded for their contributions. This talk will examine multiple layers of gender disparities in science, triangulating data from scientometrics, surveys, and social media to provide a broader perspective on the gendered nature of scientific communication. The extent of gender disparities and the ways in which new media are changing these patterns will be discussed. The talk will end with a discussion of interventions and innovations that are disrupting the scholarly ecosystem.
