6:30 p.m. Presentation by Janice Kaplan
Historically, the word genius is almost exclusively defined through male achievement. When asked to name a genius, people mention Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, and Steve Jobs. As for great women? In one survey, the only female genius anyone listed was Marie Curie. Kaplan will explore the forces that have skewed the narrative away from women's successes and discuss the practical ways we can all contribute to shining a light on the accomplishments of girls and women.
