Even though women have made strides in closing gaps that have held them back in terms of wages, biases and stereotypes, we know anecdotally and through research that the issues persist. In quality, there typically has been ground to make up as women are proportionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics-related fields, in some cases making the glass ceilings and predispositions more difficult to shatter. With current awareness heightened around challenges specific to women inside the workplace, QP decided to reach out to female ASQ members and contributors to tap into their experiences and world views on the workplace—and how they perceive the past, present and future for themselves and their peers.
