Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

March 8th, 2016

Do you know who was Augusta Ada Byron? Valentina Tereshkova? Ruby Payne-Scott? Do you want to encourage more women in science and technology fields? March is Women’s History Month. Here is a list of electronic books on women in science, technology and leadership.  They can be downloaded and moved to your mobile devices for personal reading. If you want to recommend some of these books to your colleagues, please ask them to download the books themselves.

There are additional printed books on women in the various scientific and technology fields, and leadership and management skills for women in the workplace.  Come to the Hub (111-104) to see a current display and check out the books.
