"Participants and presenters from industry, universities, and government, corporate
and academic institutions report on the 'best practices' that foster women's science
careers. The papers assess whether, where, and how progress has taken place in the
25 years since the Academy held a conference entitled 'Women in Science: Determinants
of Success' that recommended ways of accelerating it, as well as goals for this century.
The shared perspective of the conference was that diversity must be abetted by substantive
changes in the attitudes, policies, and practices that inform how we educate the workforce
and how the science workplace is managed." (author's abstract)|
