Systemic barriers and supports in STEM education and careers
“Women entering the field are historically underrepresented, as are many other minority populations. There are psychological and social barriers that make it difficult for women to remain in STEM fields. They often feel that they don’t belong because they don’t have the support they need. My job is to discover and implement interventions that mitigate these barriers.”
