The Russell Women in Science Leadership Lecture Series is critical to showcasing essential women science leaders who, like Dr. Carla Brodley, have accomplished firsts in their fields. Dr. Brodley will share her ideas for growing the women-to-STEM-degree pipeline, discuss her own journey as a prominent woman leader in STEM, and describe the impactful work being conducted by the Center for Inclusive Computing (CIC) at Northeastern, where she is the founding executive director. The CIC partners with colleges and universities to increase the representation of women computing graduates by removing barriers that exclude them from discovering—and thriving in—computing programs.
