Reentry Programs for Female Scientists. Final Report.
Lantz, Alma E.; And Others
This is the final report of research oriented to determine the problems and successes associated with women scientists who reenter the labor force. The report deals with the assessment of the strategies used in the National Science Foundation (NSF) Career Facilitation Projects for reentry women. The evaluation focuses on the successful approaches rather than the successful projects. Elements of a successful project, derived from statistical analysis of survey data, are discussed. The report also presents what options and alternatives are currently available to women with backgrounds in science who wish to reenter the work force. Although the focus of the Career Facilitation Program is on the employees and not on the employers, the report presents the results of a survey of personnel officers of companies employing scientists and engineers. The results of another survey, involving science educators and administrators, are given. Participants contributed their responses to the idea of submitting or encouraging others to submit an application for funding for a Career Facilitation Program. Recommendations are given from an eighteen member panel that discussed topics which might have an impact on women who choose to reenter a science profession. (Author/SA)
