Professor Dolly Chugh's joint research on bias in academia
— November 9, 2016
Excerpt from the Financial Times -- "For example, one recent study (by Katherine Milkman, Modupe Akinola and Dolly Chugh) sent 6,500 emails to professors from a fictional student, requesting a 10-minute meeting to discuss applying to a doctoral programme. The emails were all identical except for the race or gender of the imaginary applicant. Generally, emails from white men were more likely to receive a response. But this was true for almost all subjects -- economics was not particularly blameworthy."
