My small and problematic role in the Dartmouth saga:
In 2010, I was offered a faculty position in the PBS department at Dartmouth. I was excited! It was the Ivy League! The Appalachian Trail goes through the center of campus! (1/8)
Dick Aslin also awarded for Enduring Leadership from @WomenInCogSci. "Only recently did I realize there's a dark side that runs both broad & deep... my singular regret is not recognizing that not everyone treats women in science as we all would want to be treated..." (1of2)
I stand in righteous fury beside fellow women in science in filing a lawsuit against Dartmouth. We want our voices to be heard. We demand to be taken seriously. We demand change. Thread (1/10)
This will transform the translation of science into policy and implementation as thousands of developing country practitioners and policy makers get full access to cutting edge research for the first time. Bravo @wellcometrust. Bravo @gatesfoundation. https://t.co/elc0NBBb6S
Today was the Princeton Day of Statistics. Eight invited speakers. Zero were women. Zero women at the podium. I wasn't aware it was happening until someone mentioned the horrible gender ratio of attendees. This is unacceptable, Princeton. Do better. https://t.co/p08o7TdWMs

Asking children to "do science" leads preschool-age girls to persist more on science games than asking them to "be scientists"! New lab paper with @Kat_Yee, Katya Saunders, and Sarah-Jane Leslie, in press at psych science https://t.co/TkaS2gZtsn.

Neat piece by @anjajam that highlights my paper with Monica Bucciarelli and colleagues on how children understand loops and recursive thinking — our goal was to get kids to “program” without ever teaching them a formal programming language.
