This work in progress is a mixed-methods systematic review that addresses the gap in literature specific to the conversation around how the engineering professoriate retains women in the field. The National Analysis of Diversity in Science and Engineering Faculties at Research Universities has shown that there is a significant underrepresentation of women faculty within the field of science and engineering. In this work-in-progress paper we report on a mixedmethods systematic review of literature conducted to explore the retention of women in the engineering professoriate. Keywords: faculty, women in STEM, professoriate, mixed methods systematic review
