Research Fellow for Status of Women in Nevada Report

Aug. 13, 2019

Sarah Thoman is a psychology doctoral student at UNLV. She is excited to contribute to WRIN's efforts with respect to social change and policy in Nevada. Sarah's research interests center on the influence of gender on career experiences, especially among individuals in gender atypical professions (e.g., women in STEM, male stay at home fathers). Recent projects include analyzing feminist idealogy in STEM recruitment media, and employing mixed-method approaches to understanding women's STEM career success. Sarah also worked extensively with the UNLV Psychology Diversity & Inclusion Committee and Outreach Undergraduate Mentoring Program (OUMP) on diversity and inclusion initiatives with faculty, graduate student, and undergraduate students. Prior to joining UNLV, Sarah worked as an analyst and consultant investigating employee and consumer behavior in industry.

Status of Women in Nevada report will be completed in early 2020.
