    Let’s Talk About the Need to Invest in Women Researchers and Leaders

    Every International Women’s Day, there is a call to retain talented women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields, with strategies and proposals often given by influential organisations such as the United Nations. These proposals aim to steer improvement in workplace cultures and environments, and champion equity in the opportunities available to women across fields. The theme of this year’s United Nations International Women’s Day is “Invest in women: Accelerate progress.” This blog discusses the leaky STEM pipeline with a focus on why we need to invest in women researchers, and sharing my own experiences as a woman pursing mental health research.

    #InspireInclusion: Addressing the Undue Service Burden Placed on Women Faculty in Psychology

    Psychology is often highlighted as a STEM field that has “overcome” the gender gap present in academia; while it is true that significant progress has been made in our field over the last 20 years, gender gaps still remain with regard to service responsibilities.

This blog highlights literature on this topic and some strategies for overcoming this undue service burden.

    Inclusion and Advocacy for Women with ADHD: Addressing Inequities and Challenging Diagnostic Bias on International Women’s Day

    March 8th, 2024 is International Women’s Day and this year’s theme is “Inspire Inclusion.” Unfortunately, women who hold multiple intersecting identities that are systemically oppressed world-wide are often excluded from discussions. One example includes women who are neurodiverse, and more specifically for this post, women with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Women and non-binary folks are often excluded from appropriate diagnosis of ADHD due to bias in providers, boy/men-dominated symptoms in the DSM-5 (Barkley, 2023; Hinshaw et al., 2021), socialization to mask and internalize symptoms, and sexism and other forms of discrimination. As with most discrimination, this is even worse for women with ADHD who also hold other systemically oppressed identities. This blog will focus on how to increase equity for women with ADHD with concrete solutions for multiples systems that affect them.
