Sincerely, Sue V. Rosser **Through the manuscript [**] indicates that the material in [] was added by Rosser. The first two e-mail questions were as follows: 1. What are the most significant issues/challenges/opportunities facing women scientists and engineers today as they plan their careers. 2. How does the laboratory climate (or its equivalent in your subdiscipline) impact upon the careers of women scientists and engineers. Recipients responded in their own words to these open-ended questions, usually in sentences, but sometimes in phrases or paragraphs, since no Likert Scale, multiple choice, or rank order options were given.

2 focuses on the number of aggregated responses given to Question 2 from 1997 to 2000 compared to the aggregated responses for 2012. The arrows show differences in ranking or whether a particular response moved up or down in position or stayed approximately the same. 1), for Question 2, many of the responses moved four or more positions up or down. This provides further evidence that responses to Question 2 reflect less consensus as well as less stability over the decade. 11 shows the responses to Question 2 when the data from all four years are pooled and categorized by the NSF directorate of the awardee.
