Title: EC Women's Academic Achievement Field Study

When: Wednesday, May 4th, 3-4pm

Where: Aldrich 107

What: Learn about a Fall 2011 EC field study opportunity designed to analyze the academic experiences of men and women at HBS and other business schools (building upon the work completed by field study teams from the classes of 2010 & 2011). Participants will be advised by Professor Kathleen McGinn and work in conjunction with the HBS administration to generate recommendations on how to improve the HBS experience. Your participation in the field study will tangibly impact HBS!

Findings from the 2010-2011 field study team can be found here:
