In a recent opinion editorial for Wired, Dr. Coil summarizes recent research in the social sciences on discrimination and bias in academic science and argues that "The systemic sexism and racism on display every day in this country also exist within the confines of science."
The Center for Research on Gender in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM) fosters social scientific research on gender disparities in STEMM fields. Sex segregation in fields of study and careers, and underrepresentation of women in STEMM fields specifically, motivates the work of CRG-STEMM affiliates.
We take into account the ways in which men's and women's professional opportunities are shaped by race, ethnicity, nationality and sexual identity as well as gender. We study these processes within specific professions, including academic science, medicine, and STEMM industries.
