Join us at our next Yale women’s network dinner! On Thursday, February 6th, we will meet at the Algonquin Club in Boston. During the dinner, we suggest you discuss the “Science Faculty’s Subtle Gender Biases Favor Male Students” study (see link below) as part of our mentoring program. As always, we will also have time for general networking. All Yale women should feel welcome to attend whether or not they have chosen to participate in the mentoring program.
To read the study, you can click this link: http://www.pnas.org/content/109/41/16474. Selecting the “Full Text” option will show you the full five-page study. If you have insufficient time for the entire study, you can read “Bias Persists for Women of Science”, the two-page New York Times article describing it. Here’s the link:http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/25/science/bias-persists-against-women-of-science-a-study-says.html?_r=0.
We encourage you to invite your Yale women friends. Although we have many alumnae addresses, we do not have them all. Please spread the word by forwarding this e-mail to the Yalies you know.
Whether or not you attend the dinner, you can e-mail Lisa Goldman ’74 at [email protected] and ask to join the Greater Boston Yale women’s network e-mail list. If you do not already receive e-mails from her, you are not currently on the list. You can also e-mail Lisa with questions about event logistics.

You also can park in any metered space. Please note that meters may go until 8:00 p.m. and ticketing happens frequently. At some spaces in the Back Bay, you must pay at multi-space meters. Please look for them rather than assuming that spaces do not have meters.
