only woman

The Yale Science & Engineering Association is delighted to feature Eileen Pollack ’78 in conversation with YSEA President Elissa Dunn Levy ’09.

Eileen is author of "The Only Woman in the Room: Why Science Is Still a Boys’ Club" and received the YSEA Award for Distinguished Service to Industry, Commerce, or Education in recognition of advancing our understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM, using creative nonfiction to capture the loneliness, humility, and humanity in being an exceptional scientist. Eileen will discuss the cultural, social, psychological, and institutional barriers confronting women in the STEM disciplines and the changing attitudes and behaviors needed to bring more women into fields in which they remain seriously under-represented.

This program is brought to the Yale community by the Yale Science and Engineering Association, in partnership with the Yale Alumni Association Shared Interest Groups.
