Full Summary: WST residents and other undergraduates are invited to dinner with Georgia Tech faculty and WST co-director Dr. Mary Frank Fox to discuss “Women, Organizations, and Science.”  

Dr. Mary Frank Fox is an ADVANCE Professor in the School of Public Policy and co-director of the Center for the Study of Women, Science, & Technology, at Georgia Tech. Her research focuses upon gender, science and academia--the study of women and men in academic and scientific organizations and occupations, with significant implications for science and technology policy. Her research has introduced and established the ways in which scientists' participation and performance reflect and are affected by the social and organizational settings in which they are educated and work.  Dr. Fox's research is published in over 60 different scholarly and scientific journals, books, and collections.  In 2015, she received an award as "Section Star" from the Science, Knowledge, and Technology Section of the American Sociological Association.

Dr. Fox brings to the national forefront issues of diversity, equity, and excellence through her current work with advisory boards and panels including those as:  Member (and twice past chair) of the Social Science Advisory Board, National Center for Women and Information Technology; Council Member, Section on Science, Knowledge, and Technology, American Sociological Association; Advisory Board, Expanding Computer Education Pathways Alliance; and Editorial Board Member of the leading journal, Social Studies of Science
