Making Science Fair – How Can We Achieve Equal Opportunities for Men and Women in Science
Robert Leslie Fisher (2007) in his book “Making Science Fair – How Can We Achieve Equal Opportunities for Men and Women in Science?”documented the foibles and deficiencies of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Medicine) fields in the first two chapters. In Chapter Three “New ways of conceptualizing scientific productivity”, he states that while “other writers on this subject have emphasized the need to improve recruiting of new talent from “under-represented minorities” or training women in ways to enhance their publications count” Fisher, on the other hand, calls“for an entirely different approach that makes paramount reforming the evaluation system in science and engineering for practicing disciplinarians.” In Chapter Four, “Conclusions and policy recommendations”, Fisher presents an alternative way of dealing with the issue. Please read Chapter Four and summarize, using your own words, the four interconnected recommendations that Fisher makes. In the first paragraph before you start summarizing, try to explain Fisher’s motive behind his interest in the topic of the under representation of women and minorities in the STEM fields in the USA. After you summarize the recommendations, write a paragraph in which you state your opinion on Fisher’s solutions.
