A great deal of often heated debate and misinformation surrounds the under-representation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. Theories abound about the degree to which biological factors, personal choice, discrimination, and other factors contribute. Surprising data from around the world as well as historical data in the U.S. offer insights into current trends in the U.S. Spanning from the global to the very local, this talk will also include new UCSD research on behavioral patterns in interviews for engineering academic jobs, and on the use of career assessment tools that recommend possible majors to undecided students.
