Times Higher Education reporter Chris Parr recently sat down with Bryn Mawr President Kim Cassidy to talk about a range of issues including the College’s involvement with the recent White House summit on college access and its success at creating women scientists.
“We don’t go around saying ‘you are a woman and you can be a scientist’, it’s in the water here. That’s the default. Who is going to be the leader in the lab, who is going to raise their hand, who’s going to talk? It’s women. There is no other option and so nobody makes a big deal of it because it is just the way it is.”
