Education: Apps that Support Diversity in Education
This app builds upon our research into the evolution of gender diversity in academic departments. We are building an app that helps university deans and department heads understand how their hiring decisions today will influence the level of gender diversity in their departments 5, 10, 20, or more years down the road. The hope is that these predictions will help departments meet diversity targets by giving them a sense of their progress towards those targets.
