OPN Column March 2012: Reflections in Diversity

On Minority Women Scientists: At the Culture-Gender Crossroads, Professor Anthony Johnson, Director of Center for Advanced Studies in Photonics Research at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA, March 2012


Professor Johnson argues that as we engage in efforts to increase diversity among scientists, culture is an important part of the conversation.

He writes: "It should be culture and gender that stipulate the diversity that is so necessary for creating a contemporary global community of scientists.

I'm intrigued by how culture poses so significant an influence, often subconsciously, and I suspect that it may contribute considerably to the disparity in minority women who enter, exit or excel in science careers."
