Women in Science: Negotiating a Successful Academic Career

September 7, 2011 | Announcements, Events, Postdoctoral Development

“For every dollar earned by a man in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) a woman earns 14% less.” (US Dept. of Commerce). Research suggests that women are less likely to initiate negotiation than men and this may account for some of the differential in salaries and other areas (e.g. start-up packages). These issues along with potential corrective strategies will be discussed at the upcoming Women in Science event.

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research is pleased to present Women in Science: Negotiating a Successful Academic Career, a workshop aimed at senior doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers, and junior faculty (everybody welcome irrespective of gender!)

Thursday, September 22, 2011, 3-6 pm
Segal Theatre, CUNY Graduate Center
