The new report from the National Research Council (NRC) summarizes a workshop organized by the ad-hoc Committee on Status and Participation of Women in STEM Disciplines and Careers in 2011 to review the existing international knowledge base and exemplary policies and programs designed to enhance the status and participation of women in STEM disciplines with a focus on chemistry, computer science, and mathematics. It highlights some research results and findings on women in selected fields and helps to identify critical gaps in data and research. Individual authored papers with more information about the presenters’ research are included in the report.
