Overview

Differences in participation of women, minorities, and persons with disabilities in science and engineering employment are rooted in differences in their current and historic participation in science and engineering education. As previous chapters show, the proportions of S&E degrees earned by women and minorities have increased over time. Because the S&E labor force is comprised of people who received their degrees from about the 1940s to the present and because women and minorities were a smaller percentage of earlier years' degree recipients, women and minorities are a smaller percentage of the labor force as a whole than they are of current degree recipients.
