The Leadership Lab for Women in STEM is designed to provide research-based, actionable solutions for your organization’s female employees in STEM professions. Since 2004, Weatherhead’s Organizational Behavior department has engaged in research on the retention of women in the STEM professions, beginning with a focus on STEM faculty and broadening to include the larger population in industry and government.

For organizations in the private, public and education sectors alike, there are enormous costs associated with women leaving the STEM professions that add to the costs of recruiting and attracting professionals. Numerous studies by Deloitte, Ernst & Young, the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology and the London School of Business, among others, demonstrate the business case for including women in an organization’s leadership and involving them with innovation. Yet despite the obvious value that women provide, they remain underrepresented in STEM fields.

Although organizations exist that promote the retention of women in academic STEM professions, none currently focus on their retention in industry and government. And no one institution has integrated the most updated research into an educational program targeted at STEM women—until now.

Invest in retaining your valuable employees with a one-of-a-kind educational opportunity: the Leadership Lab for Women in STEM.

We can adapt this program specifically for your organization, and it can be delivered on our campus or yours. Email customprograms@case.edu to learn more.
