Symposium on Addressing the Underrepresentation of Women in STEMM

Tune in tomorrow, Thursday, March 19, 2020, for the Symposium on Addressing the Underrepresentation of Women in STEMM ~

This symposium will share the key messages and findings of a recently released National Academies report focused on addressing the underrepresentation of women in science, engineering, and medicine, which was made possible by the sponsorship of the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and L’Oréal USA. Among the key issues the report addresses are:

  • How women’s participation and leadership varies across scientific, engineering, and medical disciplines
  • How the intersection of race and gender affects women of color in science, engineering, and medicine
  • Which interventions can produce sustained improvements in the representation and leadership of women in science, engineering, and medicine
  • Why effective interventions haven’t been scaled up or adopted at more institutions

The day’s event will feature presentations of the latest research and in-depth discussion with experts and leaders on the state of knowledge on the range of issues addressed in the National Academies study.
