Women in STEM
Student surveys confirm what is widely known- the experiences of women in STEM classes, study groups, and eventually employment are often challenging. Women choose other careers at alarming numbers due to those experiences. We are working to provide space to talk about these issues, build community and connection among students and faculty in STEM, and to build a strong cohort of men in STEM who work with us to improve the experiences of women in STEM.
Programs and events:
Our first events are two dinners, hosted simultaneously on Thursday, August 31st from 5:30-7:30. In the CCMPR we invite Women of Color in STEM to join us for a night of connection and community and strategy-building. In the Faculty Commons we invite Men in STEM who are interested in improving the experiences of women in STEM and becoming allies to Vassar women in STEM.
Let us know if you are interested in joining our Women in STEM initiative this year!
