Dr. Danielle Dickens, Assistant Professor of Psychology, was awarded $493,708 from the National Science Foundation for her collaborative research project entitled, Excellence in Research: Navigating the Double Bind: Assessing the Development and Contribution of Identity Shifting to the Recruitment & Retention of Black Women in STEM Education. This project will perform 3 studies using a survey and daily diary method approaches to examine identity shifting in undergraduate and graduate Black women in STEM. The new measurement tool will allow researchers to better understand STEM identity formation and is expected to lead to more effective interventions to increase and broaden participation in STEM education and careers among Black women and other women of color. Learning and establishing clearer pathways for success in STEM will ultimately increase the achievement in Black women in STEM education and careers.
