Capitalizing On the Entire Potential Innovative Capacity of Academia: Recommendations for Universities and Technology Transfer Offices
Recommendations include increasing the entrepreneurship training opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, providing implicit bias training for technology transfer officers, increasing outreach to areas more heavily dominated by women such as the humanities and nursing, tracking the gender of individuals disclosing technologies and earning patents and comparing ratios to make sure unconscious discrimination is not occurring, adopting policies that enable faculty to engage in entrepreneurial activities without penalizing their tenure success, encouraging those whose disclosures or patent applications were rejected to reapply in the future including implementing follow
up procedures, and looking to model change upon other programs that have been successful in reaching out to women.
