Ep. 33 It Just Didn’t Feel Like Me: Belonging and Sexism in Science

How often do college women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) experience sexism? And how do these experiences affect their likelihood of staying in scientific fields? In this episode we talk with Majel Baker, a counseling psychologist who investigated these questions in her doctoral dissertation. Spoiler alert: sexism is bad. But there are ways we can work to improve the situation. Plus, we have a mini-interview about what this year’s chemistry Nobel prize had to do with sustainable nanotechnology.
