Ideas for Developing and Conducting a Women in Science Career Workshop.
The design, implementation, and evaluation of a science career workshop for women are addressed. The workshop objective is to increase the percentage of women in the scientific workforce and in upper levels of scientific and technical research, development, and management. In designing the workshop, the following areas should be assessed: goals for the workshop, the target audience, areas of science and engineering that will be included, data that will be needed to evaluate the workshop, and post-workshop goals. After resolving the basic decisions, the workshop format should be developed. Examples of different kinds of conference formats are appended. Additional considerations are: managing and financing the workshop; making arrangements (e.g., selecting a location, meals, parking, and other details); identifying and recruiting presenters; recruiting participants; generating publicity; collecting resource materials and handouts; doing the workshop; conducting the evaluation; and developing ongoing and new activities. Appended materials include a list of resource materials; sample evaluation forms; and lists of associations and committees of/for women scientists, associations of/for scientists of racial and ethnic minority groups, and directors/codirectors of National Science Foundation career workshops.
