The study, funded by NSF, reveals some of the challenges that women in engineering have to confront in their careers. From the executive summary: "Women comprise more than 20% of engineering school graduates, but only 11% of practicing engineers are women, despite decades of academic, federal, and employer interventions to address this gender gap. Project on Women Engineers Retention (POWER) was designed to understand factors related to women engineers' career decisions. Over 3,700 women who had graduated with an engineering degree responded to our survey and indicated that the workplace climate was a strong factor in their decisions to not enter engineering after college or to leave the profession of engineering. Workplace climate also helped to explain current engineers' satisfaction and intention to stay in engineering."View External Website35_NSF_Women-Executive-Summary-0314.pdf
