Synopsis:

In the fields of Engineering, Science and Information Technology, there remains an underrepresentation of female leadership in entry level, intermediate, upper level, and senior level management positions, creating an insufficient number of role models to encourage other women to join these typically non-traditional female fields of work and study.

Women in Engineering, Science and Technology: Education and Career Challenges provides a collection of recent high-quality empirical studies related to the education and careers of women in engineering, science and technology disciplines, with cases on innovative approaches to attracting and supporting women in training courses, and discussions on the effectiveness of mentoring, role models, government policy, and initiatives by professional bodies. This reference work is ideal for professionals and researchers working in the field of education and career development for women in engineering, science and technology, while also offering insights and support to academics concerned with attracting and retaining women in these disciplines, and providing information to members of professional bodies representing engineers, scientists and technology workers who wish to encourage women during their transition from education to the workforce.

About the Author: is an associate professor in information systems and chair of the IS Research Committee in the faculty of business at the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba, Queensland Australia. She is an executive member of USQs GO WEST team a group providing support and mentoring to female students and staff in disciplines traditionally dominated by men. Dr Cater-Steel has previously published two edited books, one on IT Governance and Service Management and the other on Information Systems Research. Her work has been published in many international journals including the Communications of the ACM, Information and Software Technology, International Journal of IT Standards and Standardization Research and she has presented at many international conferences. She is the Chair of the local chapter of the Australian Computer Society. Her research interests include IT Governance, IT Service Management, e-Commerce adoption, Software Process Improvement and gender issues related to the participation of women in engineering, science and technology disciplines.

has a bachelor's degree in business (marketing) from Queensland University of Technology, but has drifted into finance and works in the insurance industry in Bristol, UK. Her interest in gender issues has always been evident, and was (optimistically) voted most likely to achieve equal rights for women in high school, which she successfully petitioned to have changed to equal gender rights for all. Ten years on, she is astounded that the situation has changed so little in her first decade of professional life. She plans on being more than just optimistic in her second decade.
