Nature recently published a study co-led by Raviv Murciano-Goroff, Assistant Professor of Strategy and Innovation. In the study, Raviv and his colleagues examine the lack of credit women receive for their projects in science.

According to the findings, men tend to receive more credit for their contributions across all scientific fields and stages of their careers. This gap is the most present in the early stages of women’s careers. Women are less likely to receive authorship on projects and do not receive the same level of recognition as their male colleagues.
