Despite the Odds: Executive Summary

There are multiple studies looking at why women leave engineering and technology paths. But what if we turned this around and asked: What are the common factors that motivate girls to pursue—and then persist—in engineering education and careers? DiscoverE is pleased to share Despite the Odds: Young Women Who Persist in Engineering, a comprehensive literature review conducted in partnership with Concord Evaluation Group. We hope that this report will help inform your work to engage girls (and boys) in engineering and help young women succeed in the field.
