Creating Inclusive Department Climates in STEM Fields: Multiple Faculty Perspectives on the Same Departments (2022).

ABSTRACT. Climate studies that measure equity and inclusion among faculty reveal widespread gender and race disparities in higher education. The chilly departmental climate that women and faculty of color experience is typically measured through university-wide surveys. Although inclusion plays out at the department level, research rarely focuses on departments. Drawing from 57 interviews with faculty in 14 science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)...

Despite low representation, faculty of color are disproportionately tasked with service to enhance diversity... Continue Reading →

Patching the “Leaky Pipeline”: Interventions for Women of Color Faculty in STEM Academia (2019).

ABSTRACT. The 'leaky pipeline' entails the progressive loss of competent women faculty members in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). These leaks have been identified at various career stages, including selection, promotion, and retention. Efforts to increase female representation in STEM academia have had mixed results: Although the overall percentage of STEM women faculty has increased... Continue Reading →

Encouraged or Weeded out: Perspectives of Students of Color in the STEM Disciplines on Faculty Interactions (2017)

We found that university mentoring systems were designed to align with master narratives of mentoring but did not coincide with women faculty’s own mentoring stories. Specifically, women engineers regarded their mentee experiences and cultures of mentoring with varying levels of suspicion,... Continue Reading →

Methods: Publicly available data on publications, h‐index, advancement, and prestige were assessed across core faculty in all American Psychological Association‐accredited clinical psychology programs at R1 institutions in the United States (87 programs, 918 scientists). Results: There were... Continue Reading →
