Indiana University at Bloomington, the flagship campus of the state university system, is spending $1.2 million into a project studying why there aren’t more women working in STEM fields (i.e. science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
Federal grants of a total of $8 million will go to diversity programs in STEM.
A Georgetown University professor said that recruiting women for STEM fields may be “backfiring.”
A study blamed “femininity norms” as the reason behind women not choosing STEM as a college major or profession.
