Dr. Monica F. Cox, Professor and Chair in the Department of Engineering Education at The Ohio State University, is leading the project, joined by Purdue University School of Engineering Education Assistant Professor Dr. Joyce Main and Dr. Ebony McGee, an Associate Professor of Diversity of Urban Schooling at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College.
This three-phase study delves into the reasons women continue to push forward in faculty engineering positions. It will examine situations in the context of race and class in addition to gender. Within this study, the team will focus on the stories and experiences of women faculty in engineering, including the positive aspects regarding what motivates them, how they navigate academia and how they define and achieve success.
