Been reading some somewhat old material out there on women in academia. I am getting more and more interested in this issue especially as I have become more involved in the UC Davis ADVANCE Program. The ADVANCE program from the National Science Foundation “aims to increase the participation and advancement of women in academic science and engineering careers.”
I was pointed to this Guardian article from 2012 today based on “The chemistry PhD: the impact on women’s retention”: Why women leave academia and why universities should be worried | Higher Education Network | Guardian Professional. This Guardian article has a lot of detail and links to other information. Definitely worth checking out if you had not seen it or forgotten it.
