Women in Materials Science & Engineering Breakfast 
April 23, 2014   7:00am - 8:30am

Women continue to be underrepresented in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) professions. In 2013, Women comprised over 47% of the U.S. workforce, including 51% of management and professional employees, but only 45% of scientists, 22% of technology workers, 10% of engineers and 25% of math professions. In this presentation, we will review our research that focuses on the complex factors related to women’s persistence in the STEM professions. We describe these individual, relational, cultural and organizational factors in detail. We highlight the factors that differ between men and women—spoiler alert: it’s not family and children. The presentation will conclude with recommendations for changing undergraduate education, developing specific skills in STEM women and for changes within organizations.
