Testimonial 1

"I've been at the UA for 11 years, I study inequality in scientific careers, and I've served on our department's faculty recruitment committee four times, so I am a bit astounded at how much I learned from this Toolkit. It is lucid and engaging, reviews some eye-opening empirical research, provides helpful suggestions, and -- most importantly -- informs us of many resources right here on campus. I wish I had known all of this earlier, but am eager to start implementing these ideas to help our department better reflect the diversity of the profession and our surrounding community."
