    This was fantastic! Thanks so much for putting on this event! Thought folks might appreciate this article on the more subtle effects of gender in the workplace. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/...­=

    I am amazed that the number of girls has not increased since the 1970s. I can still go places and be the only girl in the room.

    Oh how I wish I could go to this! I know this is a panel discussion, but if there are any slides or other resources after the fact, I sure would appreciate them.

      Me too! Online resources would be great, as due to unforeseeable events, I too was unable to attend.
