Leaning In and Managing Pushback
This panel featured a panel of women leaders in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine). The goals of this panel discussion were to showcase successful women leaders in STEMM, hear about their career trajectories including the choices they have made and the challenges they have encountered, and any tips they might share for how to succeed. Another goal was to address in practical terms the real-world problem many women in STEMM face when they “lean in” only to find that their actions are often met with increased and heavy resistance.
Panel Participants: Dr. Margaret Leinen, Vice Chancellor Marine Sciences and Director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography; Dr. Kit Pogliano, Professor, Division of Biological Sciences and Chair of the UCSD Academic Senate; Dr. Bess Marcus, Chair of the Department of Family and Preventative Medicine
