Research about Gender in the STEM Workplace: An Annotated Bibliography

Below is just a bit of a really terrific annotated bibliography about gender in the STEM workplace — including a lot on computer science.  Great resource!

How Stereotypes Impair Women’s Careers in Science by Ernesto Reuben et al.Men are much more likely than women to be hired for a math task, even when equally qualified. This happens regardless of the gender of the hiring manager.

Measuring the Glass Ceiling Effect: An Assessment of Discrimination in Academia by Katherine Weisshaar. In computer science, men are significantly more likely to earn tenure than women with the same research productivity. [From a summary]
