"The Equity Equation is indeed a 'sourcebook for change' as the authors describe it. the book is chock full of essential data and clear thinking about pervasive, complex biases that continue to stymie women's and girl's opportunities in science, math, and engineering—in school, on the job. What does an economic future for this country look like with less than half of its scientific innovators? Read this book if you're a researcher, educator, policy maker, or anyone else concerned about equity and a viable future for science and technology in the next century." —Mary Ellem Capek, executive director, National Council for Research on Women
“A comprehensive and thorough review of the studies on women in the sciences, mathematics, and engineering of the past couple of decades. From grade school to the corporate world, from socioeconomic status to sexual orientation, what has been studied is here. The thoughtful analysis which concludes the book will be the guide to studies and actions for the next decade. It is a must read for anyone in this field.” —Laurel L. Wilkening, chancellor, University of California, Irvine
"The Equity Equation deals candidly, thoroughly, and objectively with issues for women in science, engineering, and mathematics— issues about which I became increasingly concerned during my tenure on the National Science Board. This much-needed study not only investigates the institutional causes of gAnder inequity, but lays out the research, policy, and programs needed to change the status quo." —James Duderstadt, president, University of Michigan and former member, National Science Board
