In “The Irish Times” Today

“The Irish Times” is running a series on women in STEM. I was quoted in today’s article.

The reporter chopped out all the caveats a researcher like me uses (tends to, most, lends support…) but all in all I’m very pleased to have been able to bring student development theory into the conversation here.

  1. How nice, Shannon! Also, it’s great that The Irish Times realizes that understanding and addressing the barriers to girls/women choosing engineering is essential. Those barriers are social constructs that need to be deconstructed in order for society to benefit from girls’/women’s untapped skills in this area.
