Experts say many young people are trying to make up for lost work due to the pandemic, but young women with disabilities may have a particularly difficult time becoming employed due to discrimination. Researchers compared a group of over 350 teenage girls, with half who received the curriculum, Paths to the Future. They found the curriculum to be effective in teaching young women new skills, such as self-advocacy and increasing awareness of new career options. The education scientists say that parents can help by role playing job interviews, celebrating strengths to foster confidence, and encouraging young women to advocate for themselves when it comes to finding a job.
