The Mark of a Woman’s Record: Gender and Academic Performance in Hiring - Natasha Quadlin, 2018
Although GPA matters little for men, women benefit from moderate achievement but not high achievement. As a result, high-achieving men are called back significantly more often than high-achieving women—at a rate of nearly 2-to-1. I further find that high-achieving women are most readily penalized when they major in math: high-achieving men math majors are called back three times as often as their women counterparts. A survey experiment conducted with 261 hiring decision-makers suggests that these patterns are due to employers’ gendered standards for applicants. Employers value competence and commitment among men applicants, but instead privilege women applicants who are perceived as likeable.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) Art + Technology Lab Grants
Art + Technology Lab Program:The Art + Technology Lab supports projects that explore artistic applications of emerging technologies and ideas related to technology and culture. The program offers artists and artist collectives financial and in-kind support for new projects, with the help of expert partners from the fields of science, technology,and engineering. The Art + Technology Lab is presented by Hyundai. The program is made possible by Accenture,Snap, Inc., DreamWorks Animation, SpaceX,Googleand other innovative companies and individuals. The Lab is part of the Hyundai Project: Art + Technology at LACMA, a joint initiative exploring the convergence of art and technology.

Applying for an Art + Technology Lab Grant
Art + Technology Lab grants are open to individuals and collectives located anywhere in the world. Grants may provide financial support of up to $50,000 per project to cover artist fees and direct costs, including materials. Recipients may also receive in-kind support, such as mentorship, coaching, advice, and exposure to technologies in development at partner organizations, including Hyundai, Accenture, Snap, Inc., DreamWorks Animation,SpaceX, and Google as well as independent artists and academics working in art and technology from Jet Propulsion Laboratory,and elsewhere. This year, the Art + Technology Lab is pleased to also be collaborating with the MIT Media Lab Space Exploration Initiative.

Areas of Interest
While there is a preference for projects that explore emerging technology, prior technological experience or knowledge is not required.Artists who have not used advanced technology in their work are encouraged to consider how technology applications might build upon and expand the trajectory of their work. Recipients need not be located in or near Los Angeles. The Lab welcomes proposals for projects that are presented outside the bounds of the museum campus, including conceptual projects and those that unfold in virtual or online spaces, or in other geographic or extraterrestrial locations.
2We are particularly interested in exploratory ideas and proposals that leave room for refinement in collaboration with technologists and the museum. In addition, preference will be given to projects that are publicly accessible, consistent with LACMA’s mission, and produce models, prototypes, data, code, or other material that can be shared broadly. We also welcome proposals that utilize museum resources, including access to data, material from our archives, information about our collection, and the use of museum digital properties as a platform for presenting projects, though that is not a requirement. In general, applicants are encouraged to think beyond the traditional in-gallery exhibition presentation, to consider other possibilities and forms of public engagement.
