Academia is hard, no doubt about it. But there are things that are out of your control that can make that journey even harder. We’ve spoken on Boiling Point about 1st generation academics, struggles of university, whether to do a PhD, and so much more! Today let’s look at another perspective.  

Today Anastasia is sitting down with Associate Professor Lee Ann Rollins to share our stories as women in stem. Women compromise only 28% of the STEM workforce and only 17% of STEM higher academics, despite women compromising a good portion of these fields in undergraduate. Why are these numbers so low? How can we encourage people who identify as women to stay or pursue STEM careers? Are there any benefits to being a person who identifies as a women in STEM? All these questions we hope to chip away at today.
