2018 NCWIT Summit - “Pink Brain, Blue Brain: What's the Real Story When It Comes To ‘Gender Differences’” Plenary by Lise Eliot

Conference Year 
2018

The so-called “debate” about sex differences made waves again this year, especially in the popular discourse around women and tech. Dr. Eliot will challenge some of these long-standing myths, providing a precise overview of the research into these differences and clarifying oft-misunderstood findings. She will also offer practical advice for educators, employers, and families so that we can close the troubling gaps between boys and girls, find more intersectional solutions, and help all children grow to reach their full potential.
