Erin A. Cech, a faculty associate at the U-M Institute for Social Research Population Studies Center, discusses findings from a study confirming that heterosexual men without disabilities are privileged in STEM careers. Cech highlights that the study focused on over 25,000 professionals in careers such as science, technology, engineering, and math, finding that individuals in those areas experience better treatment. The faculty expert further explains the study, noting that straight, able-bodied, white males experience increased social inclusion, respect, and career opportunities.
