Addressing the Underrepresentation of Women in Science, Engineering, and Medicine

About the series

The National Science Foundation is pleased to announce a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) symposium that will highlight evidence-based interventions for addressing the underrepresentation of women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). 

The symposium will inform an ongoing NAS consensus study chaired by Dr. Mae Jemison, a former NASA astronaut and the first African-American woman to travel into space. This consensus study will build on the findings of previous NASEM studies, including Beyond Bias and Barriers: Fulfilling the Potential of Women in Academic Science and Engineering, Gender Differences at Critical Transitions in the Careers of Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Faculty, and Seeking Solutions: Maximizing American Talent by Advancing Women of Color in Academia

The symposium is co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the L'Oréal Foundation. More information about this study is available here.
