Committee on Women in Science and Engineering (CWSE)

Formed in 1991, the mission of CWSE is to increase participation of women in careers in the sciences and engineering. The Committee is involved in conducting research and disseminating current data on the participation of women in these fields, and in monitoring the progress of these efforts. Edited by Linda Skidmore, the CWSE Directory of Organizations Encouraging Women in Science and Engineering...
The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL)

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL), housed at the University of Wisconsin, builds off the core principles of teaching-as-research and learning communities to "develop a national faculty in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse student audiences as part of their...
Women, Minorities and People with Disabilities in Engineering

This website, from the National Science Foundation, "provides data on the participation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science and engineering education and employment." The site provides the data in the form of tables, graphics, and spreadsheets, which can downloaded free of charge. Topics addressed in the database include US Demographics, Undergraduate Enrollment,...

Thus, in an effort to increase the diversity of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce, STEM Equity Pipeline was developed. The "Online Resources" section of...
The Ella Project

Every young person deserves an opportunity to see themselves as a scientist and a superhero (though the two are not always that different), and The Ella Project helps make that possible, especially for girls who are underrepresented in the STEM field. The project brings STEM and STEAM disciplines to life with its comic book series. These books follow protagonist Ella the Engineer, an adventurous...
