Read Izabella Laba on diversity statements

There has been a dispute running through mathematical twitter about diversity statements in academic hiring. Prompted by that, Izabella Laba has just written an excellent post, which affirms the importance of diversity as a goal, but lays out the many tricky issues with diversity statements. It makes a lot of points I would like to make, and raises others that I hadn’t thought of but should have. In case there is someone reading this blog but not reading Professor Laba’s, go check it out.

Sadly, this blog is still dead. I have a list of things I would like to write on it, but I have no idea when or if I will find the time.
