My favorite thing this year was this presentation:

The Scully Effect – I Want to Believe in STEM

o Who:

Geena Davis (Actress), Mayim Bialik (Actress), Dr. Erin Macdonald (PhD, Astrophysics)

o Date/Time: Saturday, June22, 4:15pm–5:00pm

o Thanks to a recent study conducted by the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, the “Scully Effect” posited by fans of The X-Files has now been proven. The survey results showed that the character of Agent Dana Scully was an inspiration and a trailblazer—63% of women surveyed said that Scully gave them the confidence to believe that they too could succeed in a field that was male- dominated—demonstrating that gender parity in media can result in social change.

I wrote about it for Ms. Magazine: The Scully Effect and the Feminist Future of STEM
