Dataset associated with "Role Modeling is a Viable Retention Strategy for Undergraduate Women in the Geosciences"
Gender diversity leads to better science; however, a number of STEM disciplines, including many geoscience sub-disciplines show a persistent gender gap. PROmoting Geoscience Research, Education, and SuccesS (PROGRESS) is a theory-driven role modeling and mentoring program aimed at supporting undergraduate women interested in geoscience-related degree and career pathways. This study is unique because it is being conducted in a long-term applied setting, rather than as a laboratory exercise. We compare female STEM majors in PROGRESS to a matched control group (N = 380) using a longitudinal prospective ...
