The Status of Women panel showcases the power of speaking out and how the discussion of challenges faced by female professionals can have significant impact in the community.

The event is highlighted by the screening of a short documentary produced by MIT video on the 1999 report on the status of women, featuring how female faculties in the past spoke out at MIT. Following the screening is a live panel discussion with current female leaders at MIT, Chancellor Cynthia Barnhart, Dean Christine Ortiz, and your peers, Kamilla Tekiela and Caroline Chin.
