Abstract:

Women have made important contributions in all areas of science and technology. Yet the proportion of women in many areas of science and engineering, including physics, remains low.  What can we do to build an inclusive science community I'll discuss the data on the current status of women in science. Where do we stand today and what can we improve? You decide.
