In this report, we detail research into the representation of women in science, engineering and technology (SET) within online media. The context for this research is both the rapid expansion in the production and use of the internet and the ongoing under-representation of women within SET fields, particularly physics, computing and engineering.
This summary report was produced by the UKRC for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology as part of the 2009 L‘Oreal UK and Ireland Fellowships for Women in Science Programme.
Getting in getting on in construction: Experiences of women and men studying construction in Scotland
This report describes research supported by ConstructionSkills, the Scottish Resource Centre for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology, Napier University, the UK Resource Centre for Women in SET, and the European Social Fund.
This report is one of a series of studies commissioned by the UKRC for Women in SET, to explore workplace cultures in SET sectors and the absence of women. The purpose of this project was to identify the nature of SET boardroom cultures and the impact on women. The study sought to examine the cultures in a variety of organisations representing science, engineering, technology, large and small, multi-national and local, as well as boards with women and boards with no women directors.
Researching cultures in science, engineering and technology: An analysis of current and past literature
This report is a literature review of published research on the cultures of SET and the impact they have on women professionals employed in the sector. The report focuses primarily on the UK perspective, with reference to other Western countries where relevant.
