Women@NASA

To celebrate Women's History Month, NASA recently unveiled a new website that features women in NASA careers telling their stories in their own words. The website has 32 video interviews with women of diverse backgrounds who represent different aspects of the agency's work. Subjects include NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver, astronauts, engineers and scientists. They discuss their accomplishments and offer encouragement to women and girls considering technical careers so they can become the trailblazers of tomorrow. The site also provides information about NASA internships and career opportunities.View External Website

Why-So-Few-Women-in-Science-Technology-Engineering-and-Mathematics

AAUW’s 2010 research report Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics presents in-depth yet accessible descriptions of eight key research findings that point to environmental and social barriers — including stereotypes, gender bias and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities — that continue to block women’s participation and progress in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The report also includes up to date statistics on girls’ and women’s achievement and participation in these areas and offers new ideas for what each of us can do to more fully open scientific and engineering fields to girls and women.175_Why-So-Few-Women-in-Science-Technology-Engineering-and-Mathematics.pdf
