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."
