What does an economic futurefor this country look like with less than half of its scientificinnovators? Read this book if you're a researcher, educator, policymaker, or anyone else concerned about equity and a viable futurefor science and technology in the next century." —Mary EllemCapek, executive director, National Council for Research onWomen“A comprehensive and thorough review of the studies on women in thesciences, mathematics, and engineering of the past couple ofdecades. From grade school to the corporate world, fromsocioeconomic status to sexual orientation, what has been studiedis here. The thoughtful analysis which concludes the book will bethe guide to studies and actions for the next decade. It is a mustread for anyone in this field.” —Laurel L. Wilkening, chancellor, University of California, Irvine"The Equity Equation deals candidly, thoroughly, and objectivelywith issues for women in science, engineering, and mathematics—issues about which I became increasingly concerned during my tenureon the National Science Board.
