"US National Academies launches search for evidence-based programmes to support scientist parents" - Nature. 1/29/2020.

Last year, Blair-Loy and sociologist Erin Cech at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor found that 43% of US women working in full-time STEM positions in academia, government and industry leave those jobs after their first child is born or they adopt for the first time1. That number is unsurprising to many, given that lots of US institutions lack adequate support for new parents, especially mums.
