Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This 13-page paper from the 2012 WEPAN National Conference reviews the literature on the impact of cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaborations on women faculty’s careers in STEM. The conference paper presents the data which were used to estimate a baseline measurement of faculty engagement in collaborative research at one institution (by gender) as well as the methodological hurdles in identifying and defining data appropriate for this purpose. Programs designed to increase women science and engineering faculty’s participation in collaborative research initiatives are also presented. The full report is available in PDF format.
