Trauth, Eileen M., Cain, Curtis, Joshi, K. D., Kvasny, Lynette and Booth, Kayla (2012): Understanding underrepresentation in IT through intersectionality. In: Proceedings of the 2012 iConference 2012. pp. 56-62.

Results of an investigation of the effect of intersectionality on perceptions of university students about IT careers are presented. This analysis deepens the discussion began at the 2011 iConference by presenting an examination of responses of African American males and females on the topic of gender norms and stereotypes about IT professionals. The findings provide evidence of the influence of race on gender stereotypes that individuals hold about the IT field. Gender differences in stereotypes reveal within-race variation in perceptions about the IT field. IT skills perceived by African American females as feminine are nearly identical to those found across all participants in the study. In contrast, African American males did not identify any skills as feminine. These results suggest that finer grained analysis of under representation in the IT field can be achieved by pursuing the intersectionality of gender and race.

Trauth, Eileen M. and Erickson, Lee B. (2011): Social inclusion in the information economy: the context of university-industry collaborations for regional innovation. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 785-787.

Land grant universities in the 21st century must broaden their scope by facilitating economic growth through innovation in the new information economy. Doing so also broadens the social inclusion goal beyond labor force diversity to include legacy industrial era firms that are vulnerable to exclusion in the new economy that is based on knowledge and innovation. An exploration of barriers to leveraging research universities for revitalizing legacy industrial regions is in process at a midwestern land grant university. It is focused on understanding challenges associated with knowledge exchange between university researchers and legacy industrial era businesses in order to increase the innovation capacity in the region. Preliminary results indicate that communication and culture are two key factors that hold potential barriers to successful industry-academic relationships.

Trauth, Eileen M., Kwan, Stephen K. and Barber, Susanna (1984): Channel Selection and Effective Communication for Managerial Decision Making. In ACM Transactions on Information Systems, 2 (2) pp. 123-140.

New office technologies provide a range of alternatives to traditional channels for corporate communications. This paper explores the effectiveness of print, electronic messaging, and videotape along both objective and subjective dimensions. While electronic messaging and videotape were not found to improve significantly over print either the recall of information or the quality of decisions made based on it, some interesting patterns were observed. The use of electronic messaging resulted in improved recall of information. Videotape tended toward the extremes: It was either the most or the least effective in disseminating information for learning. Subjects' attitudes about the influence of each channel on the quality of information were contrasted with the disposition toward use. In general, subjects had positive attitudes toward both electronic messaging and videotape. When asked about the likelihood of choosing a particular channel, given emphasis on certain information attributes, however, subjects consistently preferred print. These results suggest that both the communication context and user preconceptions must be taken into account when planning for the introduction of new technologies.
