Women in the Science Research Workforce: Identifying and Sustaining the Diversity Advantage

Sharon Bell, Yates Lyn

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    This publication reports on the research project that investigated the entrenched patterns of disadvantage associated with women's participation in the science research workforce. Despite women's advanced qualifications and employment success in science and technology, in science research retention is low and women tend not to progress beyond the postdoctoral stage. The research focused on biology and chemistry and targeted both men and women across all career stages. Research suggests that new employment conditions and new career pathways are needed to reframe patterns of participation and opportunities for success for a wider range of entrants to the scientific research workforce. This is particularly the case in universities and research institutes. [Executive summary, ed]
