Почему женщины уходят из STEM: роль стереотипов
After acquiring STEM education women are less likely to go on working in that sphere, occupy leadership positions, and get a PhD compared to men with the same level of education. In this study, we considered a stereotypical view “Work in STEM is not for womenˮ. 18 interviews were conducted with women who graduated in STEM working and not working in the sphere. According to the results, stereotypes regarding women’s place in STEM connected professional roles gradually intensified. While at the beginning all of the informants entered STEM based on the support in the secondary school, later on about 2/3 of them gradually abandoned their careers in STEM.
