    Why Don't They Hear What I Say?
    Have you ever felt as though you're shouting and no one hears; that your good work on gender and science is ignored by policy makers, teachers, and parents who all too often fall back on myths and stereotypes about gender?

    If your answer is yes, then join Pat Campbell and the FairerScience team to learn more about why you aren’t being heard and what you can do to help people separate myth from reality. We will cover issues of language, of media reporting and just what the facts actually are. In addition, we will explore the women in science blogging community and ways blogs can be used to introduce girls to the real lives of real scientists.

    Reaching Out to Underserved Populations in STEM
    You’ve spent weeks planning and developing a program to encourage girls or other underserved populations in STEM. You carefully connected with groups who may serve those populations. Still, when the registration comes in, you notice very few participants are from those targeted groups. In this session, learn from experts in the field what research and practice tell us about developing and marketing STEM programs for underserved populations in STEM.
