Harvard Creates New Task Forces on Women in Science
American Association for the Advancement of Science
A month after making controversial remarks about why men outnumber women in most scientific disciplines (Science, 28 January, p. 492), Harvard University president Lawrence Summers last week set up two task forces on campus to change the situation. The first, led by historian Evelyn Hammonds, will work to improve faculty searches and create a senior administrative position for improving gender diversity. The second group, chaired by computer scientist Barbara Grosz, will probe why women are underrepresented.
