Establishing the Research Agenda for Increasing the Representation of Women in Engineering and Computing

  title={Establishing the Research Agenda for Increasing the Representation of Women in Engineering and Computing},
  author={Kathleen Buse and Catherine Hill and Kathleen Benson},
  journal={Frontiers in Psychology},
While there is an extensive body of research on gender equity in engineering and computing, there have been few efforts to glean insight from a dialog among experts. To encourage collaboration and to develop a shared vision of the future research agenda, a 2 day workshop of 50 scholars who work on the topic of gender in engineering and computing was held at a rural conference center. The structure of the conference and the location allowed for time to reflect, dialog, and to craft an innovative…
