Little information exists about women of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), since most data are reported by race or by gender. This project conducted extensive searches of web databases, libraries, organizations' collections, and private collections to find empirical research that focused on women of color in STEM in higher education and careers. The project identified, compiled, and synthesized 116 works. Major findings and major gaps in the research were summarized in a white paper. In addition, findings were disseminated through 28 conference and meeting presentations.
