Thomas Edison State University Launches the Journal of Women and Minorities in Technology

The School of Applied Science and Technology at Thomas Edison State University in Trenton, New Jersey, is launching the Journal of Women and Minorities in Technology.

The new publication will be an open access journal that provides quality peer-reviewed articles written by academics and professionals in the fields of aviation, nuclear technology, cybersecurity, and information technology. The articles will provide technical and soft-skills information needed to excel in the field of technology, with an emphasis on women, African Americans, and other professionals from underrepresented groups.

“There is a high demand for individuals skilled in these specific technologies, and a low number of women and minorities currently working in these areas,” said Dr. Tanis Stewart, assistant dean of the School of Applied Science and Technology at Thomas Edison State University. “The Journal of Women and Minorities in Technology will offer a platform to increase those numbers by providing information and guidance on gaining the knowledge and experience needed to work in these challenging technological fields.”

Dr. Stewart holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from California State University, Fullerton, a master of public administration degree from California State University, Los Angeles, an MBA in information systems from Golden Gate University, and a Ph.D. in learning and technology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
