Title: Gender Equity in Engineering - Our Own Worst Enemy
Author: Ludovice, Peter J. ; Hunt, William D. ; Hunt, Jenny
Abstract: Electrical engineer turned economist Jenny Hunt from McGill University in Montreal joins us to discuss her work on why women leave science and engineering. Unlike many other studies, her work compared exit rates of women from science and engineering with those of other fields. The analysis indicates that to many men may be the reason many women leave engineering. Apparently, our previous hypothesis that Bill was responsible for women leaving engineering may be incorrect.
