Dawn Teele studies the economic and psychological factors that drive women to seek political office. In a new research project, "Nudging Women to Run," Teele, along with scholars at Rutgers University, Yale University, and the University of California, Berkeley, surveyed alumnae of women's campaign-training programs and is in the process of designing experimental innovations to encourage women to launch political campaigns. A leading authority on women and politics, Teele's research examines the causes and consequences of voting-rights reform, forms of bias in politics, and social-science methodology. 

Presented by Penn Arts and Sciences in partnership with the Office of University Communications, Penn Cafe events are free and open to the public, but RSVPs are encouraged.  Contact Gina Bryan at 215-898-8721 or e-mail
