Prof. Andrea Schneider, professor of law and director of the Institute for Women’s Leadership, spoke about a letter written by female ambassadors and national security leaders urging President Joe Biden to prioritize gender parity in upcoming nominations. Schneider said outside efforts, like the letter, are still required in order to see change in all institutions. “The idea that this is in one way or another magically going to change itself without actual promises, commitments and action taken, is false. If we’re not talking about it, it’s never going to change.”
