Yes I am task avoiding

I swear I will post on the Sunday Time's magazine article Teaching Boys and Girls Separately tonight, I just have to gird my loins, collect my energy, stay focused, stop swearing...-- you know how it is.

While you are waiting I have a favor. FairerScience friend Mia Ong has a project to do something that has been badly needed for a long time! She is working to systematically identify and synthesize literature on women of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). She is asking all of us for help in finding potential resources—be they quantitative or qualitative studies, narratives, or biographies. They are doing an electronic database search (and knowing Mia it will be through) but are hoping we may have some "hidden gems" to pass on. If you have anything, please let Mia know at insidethedoublebind@gmail.com or 617-547-0430.

I sent her a copy of an ASEE paper we did last year, “Changes In PhDs Awarded And In New Enrollees In Stem Graduate Programs By Gender And Race/Ethnicity” aka “All Tables All The Time” If you do send something on, let me know, I would like to read it too.


I, for one, am waiting eagerly for your input. That article really irritated me.

I recently posted a blog about women in science and the links include info about some women of color
Also, another blog I frequent posted info about Black Women in the Mathematical Sciences http://betf.blogspot.com/2008/03/black-women-in-mathematical-sciences.html

Good luck.
