Once a month, WISE hosts a journal club for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty and staff to discuss recent research on STEM equity. This month's article is "Outperforming yet undervalued: Undergraduate women in STEM."
Does achievement in STEM courses correlate with perceived expertise in STEM by student peers? In this session we will discuss findings in a recent study that women are outperforming men in both physical and life science undergraduate courses, while simultaneously continuing to be perceived as less-able students. Bring your ideas or just your curiosity - all are welcome to join in the discussion.
