Engendering Success in STEM (ESS) is a research partnership with the shared goal to foster women’s inclusion and success in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). We bring together social scientists, STEM experts, and stakeholders in STEM industry and education. Our goal is to use an evidence-based approach to break down the biases girls and women face on their pathway to success.
Applying two decades of research, our team tests interventions that harness the power of positive social interactions to reduce the effects of implicit gender bias. These interventions target the distinct obstacles that are unique to each step along the way from early education to industry.
