Upping the Numbers: Using Research-Based Decision Making to Increase Diversity in the Quantitative Disciplines

author: Patricia B. Campbell, Eric Jolly, Lesli Hoey, Lesley K. Perlman
description: "Countless reports have been issued in recent years by education, business, and government identifying an urgent issue in education and the workforce: the underrepresentation of large segments of the U.S. population in quantitatively-based occupations—and the impact of this imbalance on industry and society.

This report is among the first to gather data on what really works to increase underrepresented students’ interest and success in these fields, and to compile specific recommendations based on that data. These are not abstract exhortations, but actions that all of us can take as educators, community practitioners, policymakers, and funders."
