Abstract

This paper examines women scientists’participation in KnowledgeExchange (KE) with nonacademic actors. We compare three KE types–informal engagement, formal engagement and commercialization–andfind significant differences in participation depending on type. Ininformal engagement, women and men participate equally, but womenparticipate less than men in both formal engagement andcommercialization. We explore whether academic rank and womenpeers influence this participation gap. Wefind evidence of a levellingeffect related to academic rank in the case of formal engagement andan emulating effect related to women peers in the case ofcommercialization. The implications of the emerging gender patternsare also discussed.
