This week we're recommending WWEST's Gender Diversity in STEM: Abriefing on women in science and engineering.

From the publisher Blurb: “Whether meeting with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) industry leaders, talking to engineers and scientists, holding workshops for non-profit leaders, or running outreach events for youth, the same questions come up and again:

“Why women in STEM?” 
“Why does it matter?” 
“Aren’t we past bias in the workplace?” 
“What if engineering just isn’t interesting to girls?” 
“What can I do?”

Answering these questions requires analysis supported by facts: studies, statistics, research, and scientifically-supported conclusions.

This book responds to common questions, topics, and misconceptions with factual, cited answers and evidence. Each topic is succinct, covered in an at-a-glance visual format. These chapters are accompanied by commentaries from industry leaders and academic experts, selected to provide additional perspectives on the issue of gender diversity in STEM.”
