Survey data collected from graduate students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) at Berkeley suggest that both underrepresented minority and women graduate students publish fewer papers as graduate students, on average, than majority male students. Mark Richards, a professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley, discusses studies that indicate that performance expectations and how they are communicated in different departments might explain observed patterns of disparities in publishing. Mitigating against the effects of unclear expectations may be crucial for ensuring that minority students are fully competitive when applying for academic positions, and hence crucial to diversifying the academy.
