by Buettner, Miranda, M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2019, 51; 13878168
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to examine if photos and diversity statements would act as cues and affect workplace attitudes of women in STEM. Specifically, the study hypothesized that companies' career websites with photos of women would increase levels of organizational attractiveness and job pursuit intentions for women in STEM. It was also hypothesized that companies' career websites with diversity statements supportive of women in STEM would also increase these workplace attitudes for women in STEM. When tested with a 2 × 3 MANOVA, no effects were found. Implications, limitations and future research are discussed.
