About / Lessons Learned

Engendering Success in STEM (ESS) is a research partnership with the shared goal to foster women’s inclusion and success in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Based out of the University of British Columbia, the team includes collaborators from educational and research institutions across Canada. The partnership brings together social scientists, STEM experts, and stakeholders in STEM industry and education. Initial studies exploring women's experience in the STEM professions yield results indicating how research should be expanded to assess influences and impacts from preschool age through to professional practice. The more expanded studies will be launched in mid 2019.
