The WID community gathers daily at 3 p.m. to take a break, caffeinate and converse. Buzz Tea @ 3 is a monthly series that gathers perspectives on different topics focused on ideas and research. The Institute’s Twitter followers can also chime in by replying to @WIDiscovery, posting on its Facebook page or emailing us.
