Topics discussed under "being heard as students and postdocs" will include 1) confronting stereotypes and microinequities in the classroom, 2) overcoming internalized stereotypes and socialization barriers , 3) overcoming stereotypes imposed by others, and 4) is the traditional coed classroom a ‘chilly climate’ for women? Topics discussed under "being respected as junior faculty" will include 1) differences in teaching styles in the classroom, 2) the price of not ‘looking like a professor’, 3) the use of language – deferential vs assertive speech, 4) factors that impact on research accomplishments and success, and 5) factors that marginalize women. Topics discussed under "being recognized as senior faculty" will include 1) the nature of one’s research program and 2) the contradictions that persist in academic medicine and science.
