Meet Your Village: Intervening to improve girls' and women's STEM Outcomes: Building the STEM pipeline
Guest Speaker: Dr. Laurie O'Brien

The NSF’s ADVANCE program is focused on creating an equitable, inclusive and energizing climate for female STEM faculty members by addressing some systemic barriers which currently lead to higher attrition rates of female faculty and women of color. Our guest speaker will be addressing some of her original research in the area with the intention to increase awareness of intersectional boundaries and shift the campus culture to a more inclusive environment.

Gender differences in STEM participation and outcomes are complex, multi-determined phenomena that defy easy explanations and solutions. In this talk, I will discuss my research on interventions to improve girls and women's STEM outcomes at various points along the STEM pipeline. In addition, I will consider important issues such as intersectional approaches to studying gender in STEM.
