Abstrakt wykładu:

In this talk, Hanson explores gender inequity in STEM education and occupations in a global context. Research on the development of all STEM talent is critical given the importance of diversity for STEM and the increased demand for well-trained technical workers, scientists, and engineers. Although women are under-represented in most STEM systems around the world, some countries have been more successful in creating gender equity than others. In her research, Hanson uses cross-national data from multiple sources to examine gender inequity in STEM at various points in the science pipeline. She also focus on patterns of inequity in STEM and the political and socio-economic characteristics of countries that are doing better (and worse) on gender equity. Hanson offers some explanations for why this inequity in STEM persists and some hope for the future given the increasing success of young women in science and technology education.

SANDRA L. HANSON is Professor of Sociology and Research Associate at the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies at Catholic University. Her research examines the gender and race/ethnicity structure of science education and occupation systems in a comparative context. In Swimming Against the Tide: African American Girls in Science Education (Temple University Press, 2009), Hanson examines the experiences of African American girls in the science education system. Dr. Hanson's book Lost Talent: Women in the Sciences (Temple University Press, 1996) is a culmination of her research on the loss of talented young women in the science pipeline funded by the National Science Foundation. Currently Dr. Hanson is a Fulbright Scholar at the Jagiellonian University, Institute of Sociology.
