Topics in STEMinism: Women Preparing for Post-PhD Careers in STEM

Despite efforts to broaden participation in STEM over the last few decades, women and minorities remain underrepresented in these fields. The October Topics in STEMinism series examines the various ways in which social and cultural contexts shape the experiences of women in male-dominated STEM fields. Each week, presenters will discuss the unique challenges faced by women in their educational and career trajectories, and women scientists will provide insights and strategies for thriving in academic and non-academic contexts. Across the series, we’ll explore how feminist perspectives can inform and enhance research, teaching, and learning in STEM.
