Abstract

Over 3,000 respondents completed the Workplace Experiences Survey launched by the Society of Women Engineers and the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. Around one-third (897) of respondents left comments - a strikingly high number. The number and tone of comments show engineers’ intense interest in, and strong reaction to, the topic of implicit bias in engineering. The survey asked respondents whether they had been met with the basic patterns of gender and racial bias that have been documented, over and over again, in social psychology studies.
