Volume highlights include:• Lessons learned from NSF-ADVANCE• Data on gender composition of faculty at top earth science institutions in the US• Implicit bias and gender as a social structure• Strategies for institutional change• Dual career couples• Family friendly policies• Role of mentoring• Career advancement for women• Recruiting diverse faculty• Models of institutional transformation Women in the Geosciences is a valuable contribution to the existing literature on gender issues in STEM disciplines.
