Research shows that many girls lose interest in STEM in middle and high school, and even those who start college eager to major in the field don’t stick with it. One recent study found that women are 1.5 times more likely to drop out of STEM fields after Calculus I than men, while other findings demonstrate conscious and subconscious bias as having a dramatic effect on female students and employees engaging and advancing in the fields. Several experts will share their insight and advice for how to bring more women into the fold.
