Unlocking potential – UK perspectives on women in science, engineering and technology
John Smith believed that social justice and economic efficiency were two sides of the same coin. This phrase, which guides the work of the Smith Institute, is particularly apposite to the issue of women in science, engineering and technology (SET). Despite rapid progress in other areas of the labour market, women are still under-represented in SET jobs. The authors of this collection of essays highlight not just the inequalities of this situation but also the cost to the UK economy. We hope that this publication, which offers some practical suggestions on how government and the professions can help create a more balanced and skilled SET workforce, will raise awareness of the issue.

Women and computers. Effects of stereotype threat on attribution of failure
An article about the study, which investigated whether stereotype threat can influence women's attributions of failure in a computer task. Results suggest a stereotype threat effect on women's attribution of failure: in the negative threat condition, women attributed the failure more internally (to their own inability), and man more externally (to the faulty technical equipment). In the positive and control conditions, no significant gender differences in attribution emerged.
