Title: The Climate for Women in Science and Engineering: Perceptions of Canadian Graduate Students
Author: Korabik, K.; Brown, A.; Davidson, V.J.; Desmarais, S.
Abstract: A sample of 199 women and 188 men in Canadian science and engineering graduate programs responded to a survey, which investigated their departmental climate, opportunities for collaboration, social support, and feelings of inclusion. Analyses were conducted to identify differences between genders and differences between disciplines. The results showed genderrelated differences for collaboration: women reported higher levels of collaboration between genders than men reported. Gender differences were also found between disciplines: women in engineering reported that their departments were less congenial to women and reported significantly lower person-discipline fit than did men in engineering. Within life sciences, men reported significantly higher levels of social support than did women.
