Research & Resources Work Team

This team works to stay abreast of current research and helps NCWIT identify and prioritize new research and resource needs, conduct original social science research in support of NCWIT’s mission, and repackage existing NCWIT resources so that they are more actionable.

Past Outcomes

  • Sponsorship Toolkit
  • Critical Listening Guide
  • Interrupting Bias in Industry Settings

Current Project

“The Pathways Study” is an investigation into how women and men describe their jobs and technical career trajectories. Expected outcomes:

  • improved understanding of how women and men talk about their jobs and their pathways into these jobs
  • final research report (document + presentation)
  • development of new NCWIT resources for improving job ads and other recruitment, selection, and employee development processes

"The Pathways Study" is sponsored by Symantec.
