To increase women's participation in science and engineering, many barriers must be overcome. This book, an outcome of a conference held by the National Research Council's Committee on Women in Science and Engineering, summarizes presentations of many experts and presents information on specific strategies for increasing the participation of women in science and engineering at the undergraduate and graduate levels of study and in all employment sectors. This document also incorporates the more informal deliberations at the conference. The book contains the following chapters: (1) qThe Benefits of Diversity in the Science and Engineering Work Forceq (L. S. Wilson); (2) qInterventions Defined, Implemented, and Evaluatedq (E. Stage); (3) qOverview: The Status of Women in Science and Engineeringq (M. L. Matyas); (4) qPromoting Undergraduate Studies in Science and Engineeringq (M. L. Matyas); (5) qPromoting Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies in Science and Engineeringq (J. Sherry and L. S. Dix); (6) qPromoting Science and Engineering Careers in Academeq (G. Sposito); (7) qPromoting Science and Engineering Careers in Industryq (E. M. Conwell); and (8) qPromoting Science and Engineering Careers in the Federal Governmentq (L. S. Dix).
