Understanding How Lifelong Learning Shapes the Career Trajectories of Women with STEM Doctorates: The Life Experiences and Role Negotiations (LEARN) Model
Jaeger, Audrey J.; Hudson, Tara D.; Pasque, Penny A.; Ampaw, Frim D.
Review of Higher Education, v40 n4 p477-507 Sum 2017
We developed the Life Experiences and Role Negotiations (LEARN) Model of the Career Trajectories of Women STEM Doctorates to shift the current research paradigm on women in STEM from explaining gender differences in career/educational outcomes and decisions at particular points to understanding how cumulative learning shapes career decisions across a lifespan. Our model is based on a comprehensive view of the historical and contemporary literature and has the potential to guide future research and new interventions. This model adds the missing longitudinal dimension to the study of women's careers and deepens our understanding of what experiences influence these career decisions.
