Date: Tuesday, April 3, 2012

Professor Blair-Loy described her research investigating how the processes of cumulative
disadvantage unfold over time within departments and disciplines in ways that may affect career
outcomes for women, minority, and LGBT faculty in an elite science university. This exciting work
investigates how biases held by individuals play out in different departments and disciplinary
settings to affect careers; it is funded by an NSF ADVANCE grant. Blair-Loy will share early results and reflect on the challenges of studying academic careers in the STEM fields.
