SEX AND SCIENCE Testosterone vs Oxytocin - The science of the brain doesn't make men better scientists

SEX  AND SCIENCE Testosterone vs Oxytocin -  The science of the brain doesn't make men better scientists | Women & Underrepresented Minorities in Leadership | Scoop.it

The following article speaks to the numbers of men and women in science and who wins and who doesn't.  What it doesn't talk about is how do men get nominated?  Because of their network.  Women don't have the same network - yet.  


But contrary to the quoted "science" not finding a difference the author is missing something that explains why women are so important to boards and teams.  There really is a difference in our brains - studies have been done on the physiological differences when in high negotiation mode - men increase levels of testosterone and women increase levels of oxytocin both hormones that impact or heighten our awareness of specific actions and increase certain behaviors by activating specific parts of the brain.  Intelligence and how we use it IS NOT impacted but our reactions are heightened to differing levels with each person being specific as to the rise in the hormone levels.  Yes there is a difference - and it is proven when we negotiate as a team - it's tough to beat the team of a man and a woman.



MEN ONLY
Sex and science
Of 441 Nobel prizes only 11 have gone to women. The only two women prize-winners in physics were Marie Curie and Maria Goeppert-Mayer. The American Barbara McClintock, who made the vital discovery that chromosomes shape identity, had to wait till she was 82 before receiving the Nobel prize. Few people remember the importance of the German Emmy Noether to modern algebra, or of Sonia Kovalevskaia, the first woman university professor of mathematics (at Stockholm University). Europe’s resistance (bar the Nordic countries) to women in politics may seem astonishing, as is their near absence in certain fields (science, engineering and new technology) . It has always been fashionable for the media to discuss how the different hemispheres of the brain work. But they have produced no conclusive evidence. So what keeps women away from the "hard" sciences? Why do they not opt for these key fields when they leave school?
by Ingrid Carlander
"Is science a question of sex? This is a vital question if we want to find out about science, about the balance of forces in our society", maintains Dhavernas-Lévy, philosopher at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in Paris. In his study of the cultural aspects of science (1), Pierre Thuillier notes that "the clichés about men being better at science have been widely disseminated by university libraries, text books and the popular press".

In France, 24% of physicists and 20% of mathematicians are women. And very few women in this select band hold positions of responsibility. There are more women physicists in Italy, but hardly any in top jobs. In Germany the situation is even worse. And in the United States, where doctors and lawyers have more power than scientists, there are only 5% of women scientists.

This shortage of women in science is a real social problem that goes far beyond questions of principle. In fact it is a major social and economic issue, in a world where technological change is advancing apace. Too many people have no say in the major decisions on the objectives of the future. Women first and foremost.

In France, this year opened with a disturbing finding. Two organisations, Demain la parité (Equality Tomorrow) and Les femmes diplômées des universités (Women Graduates) published a warning report (2). They pointed out that the exclusion of women from such a vital professional field as science risked creating a total imbalance in the exercise of citizenship and power in our country.

The cliché about "innate differences" between the sexes still goes down well with the general public (some women even use this argument as a pretext) and in certain popular scientific journals. "Yet there is no proof of any innate differences between the male and female brain", according to Catherine Vidal, neuro-biologist and head of laboratory at the Institut Pasteur. "Some tests show up differences, for instance that boys are better at solving spatial problems, but these differences could be acquired. Perhaps they are acquired through outdoor games. Then there is the question of hormones: but it has never been proved that hormones make girls nicer and boys naughtier." And the fairly respectable quota of women scientists working in the CNRS (32%) contradicts the argument that men are better at scientific research than women.

30th Anniversary Leadership Conference to be held in BOSTON - October 2013

30th Anniversary  Leadership Conference to be held in BOSTON - October 2013 | Women & Underrepresented Minorities in Leadership | Scoop.it

MBAWI just announced that the 30th Anniversary of MBA Women International Leadership Conference will be held this year in Boston.  The planning committee is now forming to begin the process of building a strategic plan, bring in top speakers and continue to drive women into the leadership pipeline with corporations such as WalMart, AT & T, Deloitte, Ernst & Young as well as numerous other Fortune 500 corporate partners.  


The committee is reviewing numerous speaker applications, executive coaching applications and finalizing partnership contracts to set the stage for the largest conference that the organization has yet held.  "We have tried to keep our leadership conference format smaller to manage the boutique nature of our organization but this year is going to be difficult.  We had such amazing response from our membership and partners that they have asked us to add in additional career tracks for our growing membership" says CEO Gail Romero.


Romero went on to say "This year we have modified our mission and vision a bit to more fully embrace our international growing network of professional women.  Yes, we are MBAs first and foremost however we are finding that the expertise that our membership affords are bringing in a lot of entrepreneurs, small business owners, talent and recruitment folks as well as coaches and mentors.  So the board of directors has determined that our doors are open to any women who wish to advance their careers through networking, education, support and certifications.  For the first time ever we are bringing in university partners to help us build academic curricula that can be presented online and around the world to our growing membership.  We are one of the fastest growing women's networks in the world - and will be celebrating our 30th anniversary this year.  With this new strategy we have been growing at an amazing rate".
