Women in STEM face simultaneous invisibility and hypervisibility in settings of all types across academe. Over time, patterns of omission in citation or ideas unacknowledged in meetings have a cumulative effect. Many consequential decisions from grant funding to hiring to tenure and promotion rely formally or informally on these inequitable patterns of recognition and reward.
At the same time women are frequently subjected to increased scrutiny in evaluation and review, from hiring and job performance to funding and publication.
These experiences are shaped by race, class, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status and other types of difference, producing distinct inequitable effects. How can we work together to disrupt these patterns of inequity that mark sexist academic STEM cultures? How can we come to terms with root causes in order to structure processes and practices to more effectively counter systemic injustice?
