Career Choice Influenced by Sex Hormones

Researchers believe the normal biological absence of androgen may be a reason that fewer women choose STEM careers.

“We found there is a biological influence on that interest toward things, so maybe women aren’t going into STEM careers because what they’re interested in — people — isn’t consistent with an interest in STEM careers,” said Beltz.

“Maybe we could show females ways in which an interest in people is compatible with STEM careers.”
