Speaker Event

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Gendered Galaxy
Wednesday, April 14th
5:30-7:00 pm, Virtual
Have you ever wondered what factors resulted in today’s wage gap, the talent gap, and the glass ceiling for women? More importantly, what can we do to blaze the trail, and to stand strong and lead together? In her talk, Professor Li will walk you through some data (don’t panic, data could be fun!) to understand the “system” around the issue, including education, career choice and company policies. She will provide you with the “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Gendered Society,” an intuitive, effective, and yet not so easy to follow approach–because you will need to stick to it and practice!
