"Degrees of Difference: Gender Segregation of US Doctorates by Field and Program Prestige."

December 6, 2011 - 12:00pm
Mendenhall A
Building 120
450 Serra Mall

Open to Stanford faculty, staff, and students.

Professor Kim Weeden will show that in the US, men and women PhDs are segregated not only by field but also by the prestige of their doctoral programs: relative to field averages, women tend to be underrepresented among graduates of the highest- and the lowest-ranked doctoral programs. She will speculate about the sources of this pattern, and discuss its implications for research on gender in higher education and for institutional diversity efforts.
