MSMSE Seminar - Expanding Opportunities in Engineering - Shared screen with speaker view

The reason that number is probably stagnant is that we’re blindly pushing girls into stem fields without actually examining and changing the culture in those STEM careers and ignoring how hostile it can be for minorities as a general. By attempting to increase the numbers in this way, it puts the onus of workplace equality on those women (ie thinking more women == more equality) because we aren’t asking ourselves what it is specifically about working in STEM fields that can be hostile.

Are notebooks bad only if they have lines on only one side of the paper? Otherwise, they seem symmetric.

The culture in many engineering organizations drives women out.

Parental leave is also still uncommon for students in academia, especially for fellowships. This might make women reconsider funding or graduate opportunities because of the lack of infrastructure for new parents.
Naqsh Mansoor

A lot of male majority work places tend to have a "bro culture" in terms of conversations and workplace environment making women feel alienated.
Megan Frary

Naqsh: This is a good point!

it's a very small thing, but if any graduate student here doesn't know - Boise State does have a graduate parental leave policy

Are there strategies at the University level and/or within our School to build this inclusive culture? I think seminars like this is awesome and a good start towards bringing awareness with the issue

It's important that we all listen to the people who are speaking up... thank you to the female grad students and undergrads who are sharing their experiences today.
