Rachele Hendricks-Sturrup, DHSc

Dr. Rachele Hendricks-Sturrup is a health scientist and journalist with a background in biology and health policy. Her work involves conducting implementation research on topics focused on the 21st Century Cures Act and engaging professionals from industry, academia, government, and civil society to develop ethical, legal, and social best practices to support health technology innovation. As a journalist, Dr. Hendricks-Sturrup has interviewed and written several articles about the personal and professional journeys of women in STEM, which are read by diverse audiences across the world. 

Industry-academia partnerships in STEM: A meta-synthesis of literature and evidence gaps on gender and gender intersectionality
Industry-academia partnerships are a paradigm of and pathway to success for many academics in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Yet, some studies have exposed a significant gender gap in industry-academia partnerships, creating the need to conduct a systematic literature review to describe evidence and evidence gaps on the role of gender and gender intersectionality within industry-academia partnerships in STEM. Dr. Hendricks-Sturrup’s project consists of meta synthesis of scholarly literature to identify, define, and understand underlying themes at the intersection of gender and industry-academia partnerships in STEM and examine how those themes exist or might vary across various STEM disciplines (“research topic”).

Funded by the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program, Awards HRD-2121468 and HRD-1740860, the ADVANCE Resource and Coordination (ARC) Network seeks to achieve gender equity for faculty in higher education science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. As the STEM equity brain trust, the ARC Network recognizes the achievements made so far while producing new perspectives, methods and interventions with an intersectional, intentional and inclusive lens. The leading champion in North America to propel the inclusion of women in the field of engineering, the Women in Engineering ProActive Network (WEPAN), serves as the backbone organization of the ARC Network.
