MIT Releases Third Study On Status Of Women Science and Engineering Faculty

Today, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology releases a report examining the status of women faculty in science and engineering, the third such report since 1999. The upshot: There’s progress, but more needs to be done. The number of women faculty in science has grown from 32 to 50 in science and from 32 to 60 in engineering. Women in both schools feel more included, but point out that child care, for example, is still a “woman’s issue.” More here from the MIT website and here from The Scientist blog.
