Results Work-Life Balance

Research has found that family responsibilities are more to blame for the lack of women in STEM careers than stereotyping and other professional barriers.

Results from trying to achieve a work-life balance:

  • Professional women begin to feel a burden. Studies have shown that girls are reluctant to embark upon computer and other science related careers because of the fear they may have to work all of the time, leaving no time for a family or personal life.
  • We then begin to see women limiting themselves within the STEM fields as they believe that having a family is out of reach while working in a science-related field.
