Women in Science and Engineering Survey
We are writing to ask for your assistance in Echo's Women in Science and Engineering project at George Mason University.
Our project documents the career experiences of women scientists and engineers in recent memory. We have developed an online survey, allowing women to tell about their careers in their own words (http://echo.gmu.edu/wise/survey/index.php).
The ascent of women in science and engineering has been dramatic during the past decades. Even though more women than ever earn degrees and pursue careers in science and engineering, women' career experiences are still distinct, characterized by obstacles and subtle and not so subtle ways of discrimination.
We are hoping to create a rich public database, serving as an educational tool for scientists, scholars and historians, revealing the experiences which women have shared across a wide range of fields.
