Drink, Eat, Discuss. Join fellow Yale women at an informal potluck to discuss the topic of the day. We circulate short items for discussion (magazine articles, TED talks, etc.). You can review at your desk over lunch, at night after everyone is (finally) asleep, or in the cab on your way to the group. Grab something to share (a favorite main dish, a bottle of wine) and meet with others to eat, drink and discuss. Join us for one session or return every month. Participation for each meeting is limited to 15 people, so RSVP as soon as you can.
Wednesday, Nov. 19 at 6.00. Parity in Hyde Park (RSVP for address)
Gender parity in the workforce has been all over the news. Is it desireable? Why does it matter? What does it mean when we ask for 50/50? Here's some reading material to get you started:
- And the Emmys for writer and director go to.... a man. Again. Washington Post
- When it comes to diversity in tech, companies find safety in numbers. Slate
- Building meaningful diversity in the startup ecosystem. Women 2.0
