... in ONR's S&E work force and only three persons with disabilities, the bulk of this analysis focuses on differences by gender. PART ONE: INCREASING DIVERSITY IN ONR'S WORK FORCE The Office of Naval Research has for 50 years been in the forefront of research and development in this country, especially in the physical sciences and engineering.
From page 2...
... Combined with the population of experienced scientists and engineers, the committee believes ONR has an increasingly rich resource from which to draw in the fixture for its program officer and senior manager positions. ONR's Current Science and Engineering Work Force The scientific and engineering work force at the headquarters of ONR consists of 150 individuals.
From page 3...
... In comparing the representation of women at ONR with those in the national pools of experienced and recent scientists and engineers, the committee concludes that ONE meets or exceeds a reasonable goal of comparability in the biological sciences, engineering, and math and computer science. Improvement is needed in the physical sciences where only 3 percent of the ON11 work force is female, compared with 9 percent in the pool of experienced Ph.D.s, and in the cognitive sciences where ON8's 12 percent of women is significantly below the 34 percent in the national pool.
From page 4...

... They include high school apprenticeships, supplementation to research grants, graduate fellowships, support for postdoctoral researchers and young investigators, and awards to bolster science and engineering at the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions USA.
