About This Report
This report is part of a project to address the underrepresentation of women faculty of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) led by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR). It summarizes highlights from a convening held in May2013 that brought together nearly 50 experts, including professors, academicadministrators, and representatives of government, professional societies, the corporatesector, and women’s organizations. It addresses the barriers that make it difficult for women faculty of color to advance in STEM fields, key programmatic and policy shifts thatwould promote their success, and strategies for implementing promising changes andtaking them to scale. The convening and report are part of IWPR’s research on educationand training, which includes early care and education, girls’ experiences in the K-12system, postsecondary attainment, and high-quality workforce development opportunitiesfor STEM and other careers. IWPR’s recent research in this area includes a profile of programs at community colleges designed to engage women in STEM fields, as well asreports exploring pedagogical methods to increase women’s participation in engineering.
