In the first seminar, on September 26, we will be discussing the culture of "brilliance" in mathematics research. We ask that everyone read the following Science Magazine article about a 2015 study on this topic: http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2015/01/belief-some-fields-require-brilliance-may-keep-women-out For anyone who is interested in reading in more depth about this, you can find the original article plus two responses attached.

We will spend the first 15-20 minutes of the seminar holding small-group discussions about the article. We will spend the remaining seminar time sharing the results of these initial discussions and discussing ways in which these findings might impact our practices with regard to mentoring, collaboration, and public advocacy.
