Title: The STEM Academic System: Feedbacks Limiting Diversity and Driving Inequality
Abstract: Despite deliberate and concerted efforts over the years, the science community has not made significant progress in increasing the representation of the discipline with respect to marginalized communities (or what will be called the “new majority” community in this talk). Using a systems approach, this presentation will discuss how academic culture promotes inequality, and will describe some leading practices that can be implemented at the individual, academic department, and professional community-level to help create a diverse and inclusive science community.
