Forum: progression of female students
A common experience in many universities is that the percentage of women decreases as the academic career ladder progresses (often called the “leaky pipeline”).
This is already apparent at the level of students: female undergraduate student seem to be less likely to continue to a mathematics master and later PhD degree.
- why are female undergraduate students dropping out?
- can we prevent this?
- Are there examples of good practices or institutional measures to prevent this?
