Under the Cortex: The Story Behind “The Future of Women in Psychological Science”

In September 2020, APS published the first-ever gender parity review of psychological science: “The Future of Women in Psychological Science.”  The story behind this study, as told by some of the authors, is a compelling examination of personal experiences and observations. Through these discussions, a consensus emerges: Gender gaps for women in psychological science are closing, yet some remain, and more work is needed.   

Participants include: Junie Burke, APS (interviewer); June Gruber, Univ. Colorado; Jane Mendle, Cornell Univ.; Kristen Lindquist, UNC, Chapel Hill; Toni Schmader, Univ. British Columbia; Adrienne R. Carter-Sowell, Texas A&M Univ., and Eliza Bliss-Moreau, Univ. California, Davis.
