Early career transitions in STEM employment: Processes shaping retention and satisfaction

Professor Sharon Sassler

Drawing on several works in progress, Professor Sassler presents results suggesting that in most STEM fields, transitions into the STEM labour force have narrowed, but that women and minorities continue to experience employment in STEM jobs differently than do men. Results are drawn from quantitative and qualitative projects of mid-career and recent STEM graduates.
