BREAKING IN: Women's Accounts of How Choices Shape STEM Careers (Stylus 2015) showcases the stories of eight women scientists who have achieved successful careers in the academy, industry and government. Breaking In offers vivid insights into the challenges and barriers that women face in entering STEM while also describing these women’s motivations, the choices they made along their paths, and the intellectual satisfactions and excitement of scientific discovery they derive from their work.

 

Breaking In underscores issues aspiring women scientists will encounter on their journeys and what they can do to forestall potential obstacles, advocate for change, and fulfill their ambitions. And it speaks to the question: What can be done to encourage more women to specialize in science, mathematics, and engineering?

 

This webinar, featuring the authors and several of their informants, will offer advice and inspiration to all who are responsible for developing the creative and intellectual capital that the nation needs to compete in the global marketplace.
