The STEM Blog featured a post on the recent American Association of University Women (AAUW) report on women in STEM fields. The research report- Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics– focuses on:
“practical ways that families, schools, and communities can create an environment of encouragement that can disrupt negative stereotypes about women’s capacity in these demanding fields. By supporting the development of girls’ confidence in their ability to learn math and science,
we help motivate interest in these fields. Women’s educational progress should be celebrated, yet more work is needed to ensure that women and girls have full access to educational and employment opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.”
