PowerPoint Presentation: Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (Long)
This hour-long PowerPoint presentation makes it easy to present the findings from AAUW’s 2010 research report, Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The presentation includes recent findings that point to environmental and social barriers — including stereotypes, gender bias, and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities — that continue to block women’s participation and progress in STEM fields. Relevant for audiences interested in all levels of girls’ STEM education and the workforce beyond, this presentation offers ideas for what each of us can do to more fully open math and science fields to girls and women.
