At the dawn of the twentieth century, Pennsylvania was a war zone, caught in the struggle between the state's coal miners and factory workers and many of the companies for which they worked. Starting in the 1890s, a series of disastrous confrontations drew national attention to Pennsylvania's unique system of private law enforcement.

Below are resources that Astronomers might find useful to learn more about the topic of Diversity and Equity in STEM.


This includes resources geared towards a general audience as well as scientists, and astronomers specifically. Just like astronomy, a great deal of research has been done in this area of social science and social justice, and self-motivated education and literature research are essential to being an educated colleague and ally. This page can be a great resource for you to learn about some of that research, and share research you've found enlightening. The page highlights some scholarly and some popular resources but of course cannot be exhaustive. These resources should act as an entry point into a rich body of discourse. Note: Many of the links below are written by and for a US-based audience, but it is not the intent of this page to focus on US-only Equal Opportunity efforts.

UC Berkeley's persistent lack of faculty diversity prompts efforts to address issue.

In 1989, a group of graduate students exposed what they called the “Zero Club” — the 28 departments at UC Berkeley with no underrepresented minority faculty.

UC Berkeley's persistent lack of faculty diversity prompts efforts to address issue

In 2015, 20 of those 28 departments are still in existence, and despite efforts to increase diversity, 16 of the 20 still have no black or Latino faculty. Recently, both the Graduate Assembly and the ASUC have addressed this issue by passing resolutions targeting faculty diversity. With the idea of tackling the issue directly, the assembly passed a bill in April endorsing the election of graduate students to participate in the hiring process as full voting members of the faculty search committee. There are many factors that contribute to a lack of diversity and delay the efficacy of new policies, such as implicit bias, few underrepresented minorities in the application pool and slow turnover rates for tenured faculty.
