STEM Reentry Task Force
The Task Force’s mission is to increase the number of technical women in the STEM sector by providing support to women who are returning from a career break. The initiative is designed to produce structural change with “returnships” as a vehicle for reengaging women in STEM fields. The Task Force is composed of a cohort of organizations that share the process of developing and launching their own reentry initiatives through monthly calls, sharing of best practices, face-to-face meetings, and sourcing of candidates. Learn more about the Task Force and view an excerpt from our white paper “An Intervention Strategy to Re-engage Women Engineers in the Workforce” for more information.
