Women Don’t Like Being Engineers?

April 4, 2012

Unfortunately, I have a paper due Friday and should really be working on that instead of updating my blog. However, I couldn’t let this study go unannounced!

I’ve known about this study for a while (since my alma mater is one of the institutions that they studied) and I’ve actually met Erin Cech (the first author) at the American Society for Engineering Education Conference. She does a lot of really interesting work.

I haven’t read the paper yet, but I DID take a moment to read this article. In my experience, the results hold up and accurately reflect the fact that a lot of professional engineering environments are unsupportive of women.

I’m sure I’ll eventually get around to posting more thoughts on this subject!
