AI and Analytics Discussion and Connecting; THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2022
You’ve probably heard in the news at least a few instances of AI gone wrong - from biases against certain groups to false facial recognition matches, the responsible use of AI has become an increasingly important topic for citizens, governments and businesses alike. In this session, speakers Chris McClean, Mehrnoosh Sameki, and Petula Brown will share their views on the discipline of digital ethics and Responsible AI, how to use tools to drive Responsible AI in practice, and an industry perspective on why Responsible AI is critical. The session will also include an open discussion for you to share your views on the topic and to ask questions you may be wondering about.

Samantha Cristoforetti Will Be the First European Woman to Command the ISS
Samantha Cristoforetti will be the first European woman to command the International Space Station. In addition to being an experienced astronaut and leader, she is known for posting the first-ever TikTok from the ISS and for her popular videos chronicling daily life in space. After making the first TikTok video while aboard the International Space Station, Samantha Cristoforetti is making history once again as she’s been chosen to command the orbital outpost, making her the first European woman to do so. The European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut launched to the ISS on April 27, 2022, where she has served as lead of the U.S. Orbital Segment. But now she’s ready to take on a bigger role, serving as the commander of the ISS. Cristoforetti will officially take on the role of commander during an ISS ceremony scheduled for September 28. Upon receiving a symbolic key from fellow Expedition 67 crew member Oleg Artemyev, Cristoforetti will become the fifth European commander of the space station and the first European woman commander. The ceremony will be broadcast live and you’ll be alble to tune in at ESA’s Web TV.

Girls Who Code Announces Clubs Program Launch in Celebration of 10th Anniversary, Serving 500,000 Students Globally
Girls Who Code, the international nonprofit working to close the gender gap in technology, launched its Fall 2022 Clubs program, offering both virtual and in-person options. Clubs are free after-school programs for 3rd-12th grade students and are a key to Girls Who Code’s continuous efforts to make coding education accessible and flexible for students of all backgrounds, including those from historically underrepresented groups in the Black, Latinx, and low-income communities. This year’s Clubs program includes new offerings designed to meet this critical moment in time. Understanding that some communities need resources beyond the free curriculum, Girls Who Code has launched The Clubs Fund –a benefit to help teachers and Facilitators clear their supply wishlists and successfully run their Clubs. Additionally, cybersecurity, one of the fastest growing and most consequential sectors in the tech industry, will take center stage with the Cybersecurity Clubs Challenge. Students can create a project that spreads awareness about a cyber threat in their community and will be eligible to win a cash prize of $250 and swag for themselves and their Club.

Gender pay gap hits university faculty
More women scientists work as professors today than at any time in history. But they’re still underpaid relative to their male colleagues with similar publication records, according to a study of more than 2300 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) faculty members. The findings are “concerning,” says Bruce Weinberg, a professor of economics at Ohio State University, Columbus, who has studied gender bias in STEM but wasn’t involved in the new study. “One wants people to be compensated comparably for comparable work.” Overall, faculty members with stronger publication records were paid more, the researchers found based on publicly available faculty salary data from 17 research-intensive U.S. universities. But for each increment of gain in their h-index - a metric of scholarly productivity that reflects how many papers a researcher has published and how many times those papers have been cited - women saw less of a bump in their pay compared with their male colleagues, according to the study, which is in press at Scientometrics and was posted online as a preprint last week. Among faculty members with a relatively high h-index of 49, for instance, women’s salaries were roughly $6000 less than their male counterparts. It’s a shortfall that can really add up “when you look at it over a career,” says study author Christiane Spitzmüller, vice provost for academic affairs and strategy at the University of California, Merced.

Webinar: How to do the Work You Love Without Burning Out; Wednesday, November 16, 20222:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
We are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress, exhaustion, and burnout. And we've all bought into the story that we need to choose between meaningful success and our well-being. But as Nataly Kogan will talk about in this Fireside Chat, we must change this mindset and recognize that cultivating our well-being is not a soft skill – it's non-negotiable if we want to do the work we love in a sustainable way. As a CEO, venture capitalist, and refugee, Nataly pushed herself beyond her limit for decades, choosing success at the expense of her emotional and mental health. Her own burnout, which almost cost her the company she built, her family and herself, taught her a powerful lesson: Being a martyr and putting yourself and your emotional fitness at the bottom of your list doesn't just hurt you. It hurts your ability to do great work and be a force of good in the lives of others. Nataly brings a fundamentally new and practical approach to familiar concepts like self-care and emotional fitness. She combines research about the human brain with immediately accessible practices to help you better manage your energy and strengthen your emotional fitness so you can do the work you love without burning out.

Men outnumber women by more than 2 to 1 in US federal science jobs
According to a new EEOC report, women hold just 29% of federal STEM jobs and 26% of supervisory and leadership roles. This translates to a gender-based pay gap. The report also states that 14% of women in the federal STEM workforce filed formal complaints on equality issues in fiscal year 2019. The under-representation of women among leaders has contributed to a gender-based pay gap. On average, women in federal research jobs earned just over US$84,600 per year - about $4,300 less than men earned. Men averaged higher salaries than did women in science, engineering and maths. In technology, women out-earned men by about $2,000 (just under $86,600 annually, compared with men’s pay of just under $84,600), partly because the relatively few women in that field hold a disproportionate number of senior positions.

The Melding of Science and Art
New article on SciArt that captures artistic beauty, communicates scientific concepts, and raises visibility for social issues in science. We often hear about the stark differences between art and science, that some people are analytical while others are freethinkers, with little room to mix,” according to the exhibit founders. In reality, artists and scientists actually have a lot in common. Scientists often spend hours taking, creating, and editing beautiful images, figures, and videos, in the same way an artist labors over a new idea or piece. Both are seeking to capture truths about the world around us. Indeed, while science and art are often portrayed as polar opposites or as mutually exclusive, they actually have fundamental similarities that make them compatible, despite their apparent differences. Because of their synergy, the two fields have melded over time to become known as “SciArt” — or #SciArt, a popular hashtag linking together a vast online world of creativity.
