Our research project on Gender Equity Policy Analysis has studied the professional climate for female STEM faculty at several PA institutions. Below are links to a presentation that was given at the June 2013 meeting of WEPAN (Women in Engineering ProActive Network) and a presentation given at the October 2013 meeting of PERA (Pennsylvania Educational Research Association’s Annual Meeting). These presentations give a precise summary of our work so far.
