(p.93) 4 New Filters for Senior Women Scientists
Breaking into the Lab

Sue V. Rosser

NYU Press

This chapter describes the new set of filters that senior women scientists and engineers often encounter as they establish their careers, achieve tenure, and garner reputation in their profession. Based on research, successful women scientists and engineers do not have the same access to space, awards, students, and perks as their male peers. Moreover, balancing career and family, gaining credibility and respectability, and low numbers stand out as major issues for women scientists. As such, senior scientists articulated policies for individual faculty, institutions, and the profession. Taken together, family-friendly policies, mentoring for junior faculty, followed by monitoring to ensure that the training is carried out, would improve the institutional climate for junior women.

Keywords:   senior women scientists, tenure, professional reputation, family-friendly policies, institutional climate, junior women scientists
