Systemic racial disparities in funding rates at the National Science Foundation

Concerns about systemic racism at academic and research institutions have increased over the past decade. Here, we investigate data from the National Science Foundation (NSF), a major funder of

Reimagining the broader impacts criterion in the NSF graduate research fellowship

For graduate students, securing prestigious fellowships provides incredible benefits such as increased job opportunities and likelihood of receiving awards. These benefits can be particularly

A push for inclusive data collection in STEM organizations.

Professional societies could better survey, and thus better serve, underrepresented groups.



Anti-racist interventions to transform ecology, evolution and conservation biology departments.

A toolkit of evidence-based interventions for academic EECB departments to foster anti-racism in three areas: in the classroom; within research laboratories; and department wide is presented.

Against carceral data collection in response to anti-Asian violences

This commentary reflects on recent instances of anti-Asian violence and state responses to redress violence through data-driven strategies, and takes an antagonistic approach to policing, including the ongoing creation of data infrastructures by—and for—law enforcement through hate crimes legislation.

The Anxiety of Being Asian American: Hate Crimes and Negative Biases During the COVID-19 Pandemic

It is reviewed how the COVID-19 pandemic that began in the United States in early 2020 has elevated the risks of Asian Americans to hate crimes and Asian American businesses to vandalism and the possibility that these experiences will lead to a reinvigoration of a panethnic Asian American identity and social movement is contemplated.

Why are there so few ethnic minorities in ecology and evolutionary biology? Challenges to inclusion and the role of sense of belonging

African Americans and other ethnic minorities are severely underrepresented in both graduate education and among the professoriate in ecology and evolutionary biology (EEB). In the present research,

Unprofessional peer reviews disproportionately harm underrepresented groups in STEM

The results indicate that unprofessional reviews likely have and will continue to perpetuate the gap in STEM fields for traditionally underrepresented groups in the sciences.

Deconstructing the model minority myth and how it contributes to the invisible minority reality in higher education research

A better understanding of the model minority myth of Asian American and Pacific Islanders can help move toward generating an authentic understanding of these students.

On the utility of Asian critical (AsianCrit) theory in the field of education

Abstract Despite the powerful influence of race and racism on the experiences and outcomes of Asian Americans in US education, coherent conceptual frameworks specifically focused on delineating how
