Changing the Landscape of Women in Science, Engineering and Technology :The Experience of The UK
This paper presents the results of an evaluation of the UK Resource Centre for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology (UKRC). It discusses the UKRC’s holistic approach to the issue of women’s under-representation in science, engineering and technology (SET), and provides examples of its consequent activities. The UKRC’s key achievements have been, first, in advancing this holistic framework, which has underpinned its work with educators, employers, and other organisations, and, second, in supporting cultural change within educational institutions and employing organisations. Its achievements clarify the possibilities and difficulties inherent in advancing women in SET through different national-level initiatives, and over the longer term.
