1. Release of GAO report on Title IX and Women in Science

[This information was originally pointed out to us by Debra Rolison. -- Eds.]

The Government Accountability Office has released (on 19 July 2004) the 
congressionally requested report on Title IX compliance in science.  The 
report is entitled "Gender Issues:  Women's Participation in the Sciences
Has Increased, but Agencies Need to Do More to Ensure Compliance with Title
IX". 

The report can be directly referenced at:

2. A source for statistics on children's interest in science, K-12

-- Eds.]

Hi Ann,

I just saw your posting on the AASWomen e-newsletter. A good resource to
check out is the BEST (Building Engineering and Science Talent) web site:

 http://www.bestworkforce.org/publications.htm

BEST is a public-private partnership, which was launched to follow through
on recommendations of the Congressional Commission on the Advancement of
Women and Minorities in Science, Engineering and Technology Development.
The role of BEST is to identify what's working across the country to
develop the technical talent of underrepresented groups in pre-K - grade
12, higher education, and the workplace.

I am forwarding this to Pat Knezek as well, since there are probably
others on the AASWOMEN list who'd be interested.

Cheers,

Grace
