ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND CHALLENGES FOR WOMEN IN STEM: IMPLICATIONS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH AND PROGRAMS

Angela C. Johnson
St. Mary's College of Maryland

RÉSUMÉ

Understanding and changing women's underrepresentation in STEM education and careers depends on reliable, rich data. It requires nuanced understanding of who is underrepresented, in which disciplines, and at which career levels. Clarity is also needed about the reasons women leave STEM education and careers, and the factors that help them stay. This essay examines the contributions each article in this volume makes toward developing recruitment and retention programs for women in STEM.
