Factors Relevant to Recruitment/Retention of Minorities in Science Professions.
Rowe, Mary Budd
This paper discusses some of the factors that may be relevant to recruitment/retention of minorities into professions. It is based on two assumptions: (1) the job potential in science professions is especially good for minorities; and (2) parity with respect to minorities in science professions is an acceptable goal. Certain factors influencing recruitment/retention in science professions are examined, especially parents, peers, role models, counselors, and teachers. Information is provided to classify the steps these people can take to encourage science career choices among minorities. The author also suggests what lines of research need to be pursued as a basis for better recruitment/retention planning and some of the characteristics of a comprehensive approach to the problem of recruitment/retention.
