Girls are smarter than boys, but where are the women in math and sciences?
That’s how the inspired infographic below begins.
It tells us that girls begin to question their ability because of their gender, that this persists into college, and that we therefore get a skewed population of engineers.
Role models make a difference. Structural impediments can be subtle, like asking for information about gender. These are just two of the many lessons that can be gleaned from this poster. I hope you’ll see even more.
One of the perks of blogging is that readers take the initiative to send me articles and information they think might be interesting. This infographic was one of the treats I received this week. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do — and, please, send more!.
