NSF report says women in S&E growing in numbers but still underrepresented in workforce
Analyzing 2.2 million peer-reviewed articles can reveal all sorts of interesting things about science and engineering around the world – and it’s something the National Science Foundation (NSF) does every two years. The latest report, The State of US Science and Engineering 2020, shows that while the US science and engineering workforce continues to grow overall, "the number of women and underrepresented minorities (URMs) — blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians or Alaska Natives — has grown. However, these groups remain underrepresented in the S&E workforce relative to their overall presence in the workforce and the population."
The report, based on data from Scopus, delves into topics such as education, academic and industry research and development, and public attitudes and understanding, giving a broad picture of what’s happening in science and engineering in the US and globally. This helps universities, funding bodies and policy makers make decisions to advance research and education.
