Examining gender issues in team science is critical from the perspective of advancing and facilitating actions at the organizational level. Organizations can set goals for improving the diversity, capacity, and quality of human capital by creating a more responsive, effective and efficient research environment for people to develop and work. This presentation, organized by C3@GW - Creating a Culture of Collaboration at George Washington University will review the literature related to gender and team science, with a focus on evidence-based policy implications designed to guide how research institutions can improve the processes and practices that affect how science is conducted. Light refreshments will be served.
