Abstract: Science and engineering research excellence can be maximized if the selection of researchers is made
from 100% of the pool of human talent. This requires policies and approaches that encourage broad
sections of society, including women and other underrepresented groups, to participate in research.
Institutional policies, interpersonal interactions, and individuals’ attitudes are drivers of workplace
culture. Here, some new evidence-based and systematic approaches with a focus on culture are
proposed to foster women’s inclusion and success in science and engineering.
