Gender diversity in academia

Cross-posted from our lab blog.

Although we’d all like academia to be a true meritocracy, implicit biases shared by all of us create significant hurdles to achieving diversity in our communities.

I prepared slides to discuss the data (showing both the extent to which gender biases cause problems in science, and the different factors that may be significant contributors) and possible solutions that we can all try to live up to.

Please feel free to re-use the slides (here as pdf)!
