Lisa D. Cook, Ph.D., of Michigan State University will present "The Idea Gap in Pink and Black: Gender and Race in Innovation."

Summary:
Unequal access to invention and innovation can lead to suboptimal outcomes for individuals and for the economy as a whole. Dr. Cook's research offers evidence that women and underrepresented minorities are less likely to participate in invention and innovation at each stage of the innovative process – training, the practice of invention, and commercialization of invention. For women and African American participants (or would-be participants), this can result in an earnings, income, employment, and wealth gap. For the economy as a whole, this can result in lower output and living standards.
