Event Description
A Narrative Analysis of the Long-term Impacts of The Academy of Natural Sciences’ Women in Natural Science (WINS) Program

The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University (ANS) Women in Natural Sciences (WINS) is a 39-year old program that has served over 900 underrepresented Philadelphia girls since its inception in 1982. This free after-school and summer program provides hands-on science opportunities, positive youth development activities, and career and college exploration, introducing participants to careers in science and related professions. A Narrative Analysis of the Long-term Impacts of The Academy of Natural Sciences’ Women in Natural Science (WINS) Program pilot study aims to conduct a narrative analysis of the long-term impacts of the Academy of Natural Sciences’ Women in Natural Sciences (WINS) program on the lived experiences and life stories of its alumnae. By taking a narrative approach, this study seeks to discover the ecological aspects of the program that intersect with other ecological parts of the alumnae’s life experiences. Specifically, how their participation influenced their identity construction, career trajectories, socio-economic status, and family outcomes. On a national level, there are limited studies that explore the long-term life impacts of minoritized women in informal STEM programs (Chiu, Price, & Ovahim, 2015), and thus this pilot study could fill a very much needed gap in the existing literature.
