Join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine for a virtual workshop on March 23-24, 2022 to explore the long-term impact of COVID-19 on the future careers of women in STEM. This two-day workshop will convene experts and leaders to inform a national research agenda that ensures academic and federal institutions are prepared to monitor and mitigate the long-term negative impacts of the pandemic on the STEM careers of women—especially women of color. This forward-looking workshop aims to help institutions promote diversity, equity, and inclusion and not exacerbate existing inequities within the STEM enterprise that were further amplified by the pandemic.
This workshop will expand upon the 2021 consensus study report, The Impact of COVID-19 on the Careers of Women in Academic Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Key themes that workshop discussions may explore include:
Work-Life Boundaries, Gendered Divisions of Labor, and the Family Caregiving Policy Landscape
Online/Virtual Dynamics in Research, Teaching, Mentorship, Collaboration, and Networking
Academic Leadership and Decision-Making
Academic Productivity and Institutional Responses
Mental Health and Well-being
