In 25 minutes, I’ll be co-hosting a discussion with Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe for STEM Women on G+. We interview physical anthropologist Erin Kane who has recently returned from doing fieldwork in Cote d’Ivoire where she was studying monkey behaviour. She’ll tell us about her research and her inspired career path as a woman scientist. 

We’ll also talk about a recent study that finds 59% of anthropologists face sexual harassment in the field. Women are three times at risk, and over half of the harassment comes from senior researchers on junior women. Erin will talk about how we might increase women’s safety in the field. So much to talk about! You can leave your questions on the event page below or live tweet  @STEMWomen using #stemwomen 

The video will be available on YouTube right after the event!

Join us for a STEM Women HOA as we speak to  Erin Kane on her career as a primatologist. Erin is a graduate student in physical anthropology who recently returned to Ohio after an extended field trip. She will talk to us about her recent experiences in the field working with Diana monkeys, her exciting career path as a woman in STEM, what inspires her, and why supporting women in STEM is important. 

This HOA will be hosted by Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe  and Dr Zuleyka Zevallos   and you can tune in on Sunday May 25th at 4.30 PM Central/ 10.30PM UK. The hangout will be available for viewing on our YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/stemwomen) after the event.
