NAESM Hosts Series of Webinars on The Impact of COVID-19 on Women in STEMM

Posted: October 30, 2020

The Impact of COVID-19 on Women in STEMM:
Preliminary Results from Commissioned Papers

The NAESM committee on The Potential Impact of COVID-19 on the Careers of Women in Academic STEMM will be holding webinars during the first two weeks of November. Women in academic scientific, engineering, and medical (STEMM) fields face a myriad of systemic inequities that contribute to significant underrepresentation and disproportionate hardship, challenges amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent changes to higher education. To help inform a National Academies fast-track consensus on the Potential Impact of COVID-19 on the Careers of Women in Academic STEMM, the committee commissioned five papers. In this series of public webinars, the authors of the each of the five papers will present their preliminary results to the committee and address public questions.

Registration is requested so that the Academies can tally interest and participation; all of the sessions are free and all are virtual.
