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. 

How Inclusive are STEM Professionals?

The STEM Inclusion Study provides unprecedented insight into the contours of inequality by gender, disability status, and race/ ethnicity. It is also the first study to systematically examine the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) professionals in STEM.

The results and analysis of the study will be presented by:

  • Dr. Erin Cech, principal investigator of quantitative research and sociology professor at the University of Michigan
