Women in Academia Panel Banner

Listen to Professors Susan Hockfield, Barbara Liskov, Paola Cappellaro and Molly Potter share their insights on women in academia.

Undergraduate Women in Physics presents an interdisciplinary panel of MIT leaders, held in honor of Professor Dresselhaus's contributions to women and junior faculty. The panel will be moderated by Prof. Edmund Bertschinger, the institute Community and Equity Chair.

This is the chance to have your questions answered by distinguished women faculty at MIT. A reception with the panelists will follow the discussion and Q&A session.
