Clearinghouse for Labor Evaluation and Research (CLEAR) Advancement, Reviews, Innovations and Syntheses of Evidence (ARISE)

Clearinghouse for Labor Evaluation and Research's (CLEAR) mission is to make research on labor topics more accessible to practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and the public more broadly so that it can inform their decisions about labor policies and programs. AIR will help the CLEAR contractor, ICF, update their evidence review standards and procedures to the highest quality standard possible.

Identifying and Reducing Gender Bias in STEM: Systematically Synthesizing the Experimental Evidence

Researchers are debating whether biases against women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) have reduced over time, persist in nearly all training and career contexts, or vary in more nuanced ways across contexts and STEM fields. AIR is synthesizing four decades of research to understand the postsecondary and workforce contexts in which bias against women in STEM remains especially pernicious and the interventions that can most effectively reduce such biases.
