The National Science Foundation has recognized that career–life balance in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) present unique challenges for women of color (NSF, 2011). This panel will present research about career–life balance issues for underrepresented minority women and the impact of these issues on their career trajectories. We will illustrate how corporations can address these issues by describing EMERGE, which fosters a nurturing, collaborative and supportive environment. We invite the corporations and organizations so publicly committed to addressing diversity in computing into conversation about how to implement lasting change grounded in the reality of women’s lived experiences.
