Center for Women and Work team

Women & STEM

Our expertise on women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) includes a research and practice agenda, developed through an intersectional lens, that drives institutions and governments toward more equitable policies and practices which address the growing concern over gender disparities in the STEM workforce. We research and develop innovative educational models to increase women’s and girls’ participation in STEM programs, conduct research on the attrition and retention of undergraduate women in STEM, and their capability to thrive in both academic and non-academic careers. Lastly, we analyze and promote effective policies for women’s participation and success in the STEM workforce.
