Shared By Guest
"If you have thrown up your hands in despair after trying to retain women science and engineering in the academy, read this book. The Author of this Book is Danielle Lavaque-Manty. It offers detailed descriptions of a wide array of tried-and-true programs that have been tested out by the NSF ADVANCE program. Array ISBN . " ---Joan C. Transforming Science and Engineering: Advancing Academic Women available in English. Williams, 1066 Foundation Chair & Distinguished Professor of Law Director, Center for WorkLife Law University of California "Solid and practical, this volume details the first years of NSF funded institutional change to remake gender dynamics inside U.S. science. What works? What doesn't? And why?" ---Londa Schiebinger, John L. Hinds Professor of History of Science and Barbara D. Finberg Director, Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University, and author of Has Feminism Changed Science? "This book's time has come. Transforming Science and Engineering is important, and lots of people can learn from what has happened in the ADVANCE universities." ---Lotte Bailyn, Professor of Management, Behavioral and Policy Sciences Department, Sloan School of Management, MIT; author of Breaking the Mold: Redesigning Work for Productive and Satisfying Lives; and coauthor of Beyond Work-Family Balance: Advancing Gender Equity and Workplace Performance "This collection profiles 16 NSF ADVANCE grant successes, sandwiched between an interview with Dr. Alice Hogan and Dr. Lee Harle's summary of cost-effective practices from ADVANCE programs, giving so many 'biggest bang for the buck' examples in so few pages that it will easily justify both the cost of the book and the reading time. These accounts do not continue the too-common vague referrals to 'unhealthy environment' or 'chilly climate,' but rather expound the situations before and after the interventions, something necessary in order to transplant the programs, or even to use the programs for idea generation.
