Founded in 1974, the Clayman Institute contributes to the development of greater gender equity in society through the creation of innovative research studies and the dissemination of key findings to decision makers in universities, business, communities, and government.

The institute focuses primarily on gender issues in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It brings together faculty and students in interdisciplinary seminars, and organizes guest lectures and conferences open to the general public. It recently published a volume entitled Gendered Innovations in Science and Engineering, edited by Londa Schiebinger, and a report entitled Dual Career Academic Couples: What Universities Need to Know which is available for download from the institute's web site. In-house research projects include: why mid-level women leave technology jobs in Silicon Valley; and women in entrepreneurship and venture capital. The institute also offers prizes and awards to graduate students and faculty, including seven graduate dissertation fellowships, and hosts up to seven residential research fellows who contribute to the institute's research studies and broader research agenda. Each quarter, the institute hosts a new exhibition of gender-related art work, artists' salons and receptions, and meetings of its Professional Women Artists' Group.
