Research Funders and Diversity in Academia Presentation at EARMA Conference 2024 Thursday, April 25 Odense, Denmark

Slides from the scientifyRESEARCH pecha kucha at the 2024 EARMA (European Association of Research Managers and Administrators) conference in Odense, Denmark on April 25, 2024:

Research funders and diversity in academia

Some useful take-home messages from the data we presented:

  • There are many ways that funders support diversity, but there are not many that have dedicated funding instruments to support diversity.
  • We looked at funders in our database that had dedicated funding opportunities that support 1) DEI initiatives 2) under-represented groups and 3) women in research.
  • The most prevalent category of diversity funding and prevalence within a world region was women’s funding in Europe – where 16% of funders in our study had dedicated women’s funding there.
  • We shared examples of funders that have these dedicated diversity funding instruments.
