Diversity in academia is in the public spotlight. Yet, despite some important strides for women in academic science careers, many workplaces and their cultures discriminate against women and can endanger them – professionally, psychologically, and even physically. Recent findings have played an important role in shaping new policies at field sites, universities, professional organizations, and funding agencies. Rutherford and Arreola will summarize this work and share suggestions from the evidence and from the recent NASEM (The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine) #ScienceToo report for improving the academic climate for women.
