Expanding Minds – The Allen Institute Conference on Human Brain Evolution

Expanding Minds – The Allen Institute Conference on Human Brain Evolution

Organizers: Christopher Walsh, Michael Greenberg, David Reich
Speaker gender ratio: 7 Women : 6 Men (54%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 31%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword brain AND evolution  and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 28 pages of results using our python script. We left 23 names unclassified. The base rate is estimated to be 31%.
