 Presentation Abstract 
Dr. Hilary Lips Center Director & Psychology Chair: Sept 2011The presentation highlights work by Dr. Hilary M. Lips, professor and chair of psychology and director of the Center for Gender Studies at Radford University. Using research results from studies of female and male students' career expectations and attitudes, as well as current and historical data from the Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics surveys (the CPS, ACS, ATUS), the General Accounting Office (GAO) and other sources, Dr. Lips' presentation emphasizes the challenges, difficulties and controversies in assessing the gender wage gap within "Human Capital Models". In her presentation special emphasis is given to the differences and similarities in students' anticipated work and career attitudes when compared to statistical studies of employed workers. Of special interest in these comparisons is the extent to which students' self-evaluations anticipate, fail to anticipate, and even contradict often assumed gender differences in work and career "investments" that young women and men college graduates bring to their careers.
