Inclusivity Journal Club

The Inclusivity Journal Club meets monthly to review and discuss social science literature, with the goal of understanding diversity and inclusivity problems in STEM.

  • Why are some groups represented disproportionately in STEM fields?
  • Is there anything we can do to correct these imbalances?
  • What other problems might arise from these imbalances?

These questions form the basis for extensive scientific inquiry. If you’re interested in what the academic literature has to say about inclusivity/diversity in STEM, then you are very welcome to attend the Inclusivity Journal Club.
