Fourth Report to the Congress of the Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and Engineering.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and Engineering.
This is the fourth report to the Congress of this committee; formerly known as the Committee on Equal Opportunities in Science and Technology. This report summarizes work accomplished since the April, 1986 report. The report contains recommendations for action to ensure the continued and expanded participation of women, minorities and the handicapped in science and engineering fields. Emphasis is placed on a comprehensive approach to the participation of underrepresented minorities, on specific intervention strategies for girls and women at key points along the educational pipeline, and on accessibility for persons with disabilities to scientific meetings. It is suggested that existing programs that have been demonstrated to work through replication or expansion of exemplary projects be encouraged. Areas to be explored by the Committee in the near future are identified. This document includes an executive summary with recommendations, discussions of the national context and the status of equal opportunity in the United States, and subcommittee reports. (CW)
