      As women navigate the job search in STEM fields, they often have to overcome the implicit biases that have knowingly, or unknowingly, impacted and continue to impact them throughout their careers. Thus far, the conversation of equity tends to only involve those who have already faced these hurdles directly. To rectify this, several campus groups, with support from our Careers, Life, and Yale program and Yale alumni panelists, will host the 3rd annual Equity in the Job Search Symposium to expand the conversation regarding women in STEM to a wider audience and impart the idea that everyone benefits from, and can act to cultivate, inclusivity. Attendees (graduate and professional school students; and post-doctoral candidates) will gain:

      1. Knowledge of implicit bias research and tools to overcome bias
      2. Resources for navigating the job search

      Typically, discussions of gender bias and career advice are relegated to separate forums, despite heavily affecting each other. This event fills a need at Yale to bring together the different offices and organizations working on diversity for an event surrounding the job search. This event brings together representatives from the Society of Women Engineers, Women in Science at Yale, the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science, and Women in Physics. By focusing on the job search, attendees interact with those who have personally experienced gender bias. Integrating practical career advice with a data-driven discussion of gender bias will not only better prepare attendees for navigating the job market, but empower them to reduce gender bias in their labs and workplaces.

      Join us for Common Room Conversation Nights in 2019! What are the elements of a good mystery and can those elements survive in the modern surveillance state? A conversation with Art Taylor (BR ’90) and John Copenhaver.

      Remember those evenings back at Yale when you ended up in the Common Room after dinner and fell into conversation with friends, spending a few hours tossing around ideas about interesting topics with clever, well informed people? The Yale Club of DC is hoping to give you a chance to relive those days with a new series of “Common Room Conversations.” Gathering at an alum’s home for wine, cheese, and conversation will give the evening a cozy, informal feeling. Bringing in speakers who are distinguished in a particular field to provide background, toss out questions, and help shape the conversation will allow us to really explore a topic. 

      For more information, please contact Rebecca Borden of the Yale Club of Washington, DC.
