Description

The purpose of Project RISE (Research Investigating STEM Embeddedness) is to understand the discrepancies between men and women’s experiences as Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) majors by following them in their transition into workforce. Participants were interviewed 3 months after entering their job or graduate program and were asked about their experiences in the field. These responses were then analyzed to investigate how embedded STEM graduates are in their entry level positions. This presentation will address differences in student’s transition to postgraduation roles based on the type of position (i.e., graduate school vs workforce) and gender.
