The number of jobs in our country requiring substantial STEM expertise has grown nearly 34 percent over the past decade and employers say they are having trouble filling jobs in occupations that depend on skilled technical workers. Returning women and women veterans are a pool of talented individuals who can fill STEM jobs nationwide. The NSF RESET 2021 conference will support the re-entry of women and women veterans in STEM, especially in Emerging Technology (EmTech) fields, such as cybersecurity, data science, mobile development, and cloud computing.
The goal of this conference is to explore and discuss challenges encountered by returning women with the objective of better understanding their situations and identifying solutions to their problems in accessing EmTech education and employment. In addition to the many women students who will participate in the conference, there will also be presenters and invited participants from industry, NSF INCLUDES Alliances, social science and policy fields, and from support organizations, such as university veteran’s affairs and academic services offices at universities.
Identify the barriers for returning women to enter EmTech education and workforce
Connect with scholars, policy makers and leaders to make change in EmTech
Obtain advice to create effective re-entry strategies in EmTech for returning women
