Academic science, technology, engineering, and medical (STEM) disciplines have been notoriously chilly and inhospitable climates for women. These academic work cultures are especially intransigent to the inclusion and advancement of women in the professional ranks even as their numbers have grown in undergraduate and graduate enrolments and as advanced degree recipients. The lack of women in faculty positions in science and engineering, particularly in senior faculty and leadership positions, remains a widespread problem. Recently, researchers have begun to explicate the various approaches that academic institutions have implemented to improve gender equity.Gender Equity and Institutional Transformation offers a complete account of successful approaches to increase the participation and success of women in academia. Providing a comprehensive, stand-alone source of data on the specific organizational change initiatives undertaken at universities targeting the increased participation and advancement of women faculty in academic STEM, this volume documents the outcomes and effectiveness of these transformation efforts to advance the recruitment, advancement and leadership of women faculty. The authors include discipline-specific analyses of the initiatives, and propose an empirically-derived model of organizational change to serve as a template to academic and other organizations seeking transformation related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
