AbstractI would like to express deep gratitude to Dr. Justin Jarvis who has mentored me through this process. He has gifted me with his knowledge, compassion, and his shared interest in this delicate topic. His passion for excellence motivated me to shed light on my thoughts and concerns with respect to the gender gap in academia and the workforce. Though there is considerable work to be done in this sector of research, with grace he has allowed me to share observations I found at my own academic institution. Thus, I am confident that this research will guide others to take initiative and further develop tangible strategies and discuss next steps. I would like to thank my academic institution for encouraging me to pursue my curiosities and challenging me academically. The completion of this thesis would not have been possible without the enthusiastic support of Eller College of Management, my peers, and family. The guidance and support I’ve received will always be a crucial memory of my college venture
