The Current State of STEM Inclusion in the Workplace
In October of 2018, AIChE, among other engineering and science organizations, participated in the STEM Inclusion Study.
The goal of the study was to investigate the experiences of professionals from across STEM disciplines and industries to identify potential mechanisms of disadvantage at the interpersonal, organizational, and professional levels.
Please join us as Dr. Erin Cech presents the results and analysis of this study.
