Are there gender differences in authority in mathematics? For instance, do students treat male and female professors differently and what can we do to overcome any negative consequences? Also, what might some positive differences be? We may also discuss issues surrounding respect and authority in research. All are welcome, but if possible, please let Becca Winarski rwinarski@math.gatech.edu know if you plan on attending, so she can get an approximate head count.
