Researchers at Arizona State University will soon launch a new resource, CareerWISE, which "offers online personal resilience training for women in STEM fields," according to the school's release. The team behind CareerWISE aims to "strengthen women's skills to manage whatever personal and interpersonal challenges arise along the way to completing STEM graduate degrees and entering careers," through multimedia Web-based training and "hundreds of 'HerStory' … interviews with women who have successfully navigated the hurdles of graduate school in a variety of STEM fields," among other things. The Web site, which is supported as part of the National Science Foundation's $3.2 million endeavor to "address the loss of committed women from science and engineering doctoral programs," will launch on November 4.
