As G-VERSITY (Achieving Gender Diversity) is slowly coming to an end, we are happy to introduce the Final Podcast Series with all of our researchers to you, where each of them talks about insightful and useful findings from their work as well as discusses opportunities arising from their research.

In this podcast episode, G-Versity early stage researcher, Kezia Olive speaks about how boys and girls develop different motivational beliefs towards science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and what individual and social factors (e.g. achievement, parents’ beliefs or language skills) can affect them in this. Tune in to hear more!
