Sexism in the Academy | Issue 34 | n+1
Even when a woman does publish after so many delays and financial shortfalls, her work is much less likely to be cited by a man: in one study of economics articles, men were half as likely as women to cite the work of female scholars, while women manifested no such bias.

Even when a woman does publish after so many delays and financial shortfalls, her work is much less likely to be cited by a man: in one study of economics articles, men were half as likely as women to cite the work of female scholars, while women manifested no such bias.

The odds of success in an academic career are lengthened if a woman confronts both sexism and racism; in 2018, there were only twenty-five black female professors in the UK, out of the total nineteen-thousand-strong professoriate.


Another study quoted several undergrads who shared the sentiment that “I didn’t know I was a girl until I came to Harvard.”

Sexism in the Academy | Issue 34 | n+1
according to a study of international relations literature, men rarely want to collaborate with women, while women exhibit no bias when it comes to picking a collaborator. Men, however, probably should write more often with women because, as Hengel showed in her study, “everyone writes more clearly when collaborating with women.”

All the best engineering advice I stole from non-technical people
Having a culture where people are not optimizing to avoid mentioning something true but irrelevant means we make better technical decisions overall because we get the benefit of every teammate’s complete perspective

How I changed my approach: I think about Leslie’s comment a lot when I’m working with engineering teams. Too often engineers get so wrapped up in wanting to prove they’re good enough they railroad colleagues with complimentary skillsets without realizing it. Software engineers suddenly act like they can be their own product managers, designers, copy editors, and sales people. It isn’t always clear to professionals in other disciplines that this need to be a one person team is how engineers look for acceptance and respect.
When I find myself itching to interrupt someone with my thoughts about a topic I try to ask myself “what am I being asked to be an expert in here?” Often I realize that in my enthusiasm to show my casual knowledge I’m about to correct someone that who has devoted a considerable amount of time and effort into developing their expertise in the topic. I never regret keeping my mouth shut and letting them speak.

How I changed my approach: A big part of what I do as an engineering manager is stopping truly brilliant people from executing on plans that begin with the words “I can just do this myself in a weekend.”
If you’re doing things for colleagues and denying them the ability to either do it themselves or participate in the process, you’re not helping, you’re making them dependent on you. Even if the end result is much faster doing it yourself.

Organizations have to constantly be reminded that they hired great people who know what they are doing. They know that in the beginning, but over time if the value of their employees is not observable then the trust degrades and bureaucracy becomes more and more attractive to leadership. The reason why people have to be told to take time off when they have unlimited vacation time, or go home early if they’re finished at 2pm, or not to answer emails after midnight is because they have innate understanding that being observed working is more valuable than the results of their work

The House of Myth
I was home with my two-year-old daughter when the Ferguson Uprising began in 2014, and like many Americans watching the news that summer, I experienced a shift in perspective that was almost physical, as if someone had taken me by the shoulders and turned me around: I saw, suddenly, how these myths of the South had worked upon me, trained me into mistaking who was dangerous in America. As I educated myself, I became determined not to pass along this mythology of whiteness to my daughter, but rather to tell her the truth, as far as I could grasp it. This truth includes the plantations that are part of America’s past and our own.
