David Esai from HHMI has argued for many years that the pipeline metaphor is faulty and misleading and has argue for a change in metaphor to a “watershed” since there are many different entry points to modern STEM fields and that this should be encouraged to allow for alternative pathways to success. Do you have suggestions to help us change this metaphor in math bio?

FYI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seema_Nanda (I’m reading about her she’s super awesome!)
Kate Royce

Thank you for an inspiring and reassuring talk!
Rebecca Tyson (she/her)

Thanks for your comment Lou. It seems to me that the "Leaky Pipeline" is what we have and what we want is a "Watershed".
Stacey Smith?

One suggestion I have to address Elissa’s last point: each of us puts pdfs of our papers on our personal website. It makes our work available to people who might not have easy access, and also means our work is more likely to be read. Win-win!
Elissa Schwartz
41:58
Thank you Lou - very good point! Consider it changed in my talk as of now :-)
Shelby Scott (she/her/hers)

Stacey, this is what I do! While I don’t have a ton of publications, I want them to be as accessible as possible.
Stacey Smith?
46:01
Awesome. I’ve been doing it for years, ever since I realised this problem after my first time in Africa.

Nice talk! BTW I had done open-ended final projects this quarter and one of the options was a Markov SZR model, modeled on Stacey et al’s paper
Stacey Smith?
01:13:13
Nice!
Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)
01:33:01
**ABSOLUTELY** This is where so much of this plays out.
Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)
01:33:23
People hiding behind “process” when they really mean “I’m biased"

oh my GOD the vegan questions
Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)

Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)
01:42:09
The vegan questions :)
Natalie Meacham (she/her)
01:45:15
lots of trans youtubers who choose to share their answers to the very personal questions
Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)
01:45:35
Yup - google exists ;)
Shelby Scott (she/her/hers)
01:47:09
Or go with the best gender neutral collective — y’all. Something the American South got right in ways of inclusion ;)
Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)
01:47:24
I agree - y’all is fantastic! :)

I have a question about diversity for groups of people who are not "out". How do we know if we are doing well when we don't have a measure of numbers? Have you thought about this, Stacey? Anyone else in this meeting have thoughts? I feel like inclusive environments can be achievable, but not sure how we know if we have done well in terms of achieving diversity.
Alex Hoover
01:51:24
Just to clarify, @Helen, you’re asking what the demographic breakdown of those who are closeted?
Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)
01:52:26
What about anonymous surveys where you ask about how “included” people feel? :/ (I hesitate to suggest a climate survey…)
Natalie Lemanski
01:52:54
Do you think it's helpful for people (including cis people) to make a habit of including their pronouns during introductions?
Stacey Smith?
01:53:21
Yes, definitely!
Suzanne M Lenhart
01:53:42
Thanks for this important talk!
Natalie Meacham (she/her)
01:56:11
My partner shared a form for teachers to use that breaks down what pronouns the students want the teacher to use in class, in private, when calling home, etc,
Shelby Scott (she/her/hers)
01:56:17
In terms of the surveys, I wonder if you can ask, “do you feel as though your [insert underrepresented group] colleagues/fellow students/etc. feel included here?” Even if the surveyor is still closeted, you may be able to get a feel for how they feel they would be treated if out.
Shelby Scott (she/her/hers)

Suzanne Sindi (She/Her)
