Early this month, the IHME Diversity Club discussed the recent paper, Transgender Population Size in the United States: a Meta-Regression of Population-Based Probability Samples, by Meerwijk and Sevelius from AJPH: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5227946/
This helped us dig into trans and non-binary gender and how it relates to our work in health metrics.
This last diversity club we discussed power and privilege, and we used White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack by Peggy McIntosh as the reading. https://nationalseedproject.org/images/documents/Knapsack_plus_Notes-Peggy_McIntosh.pdf
After discussing enough to get people who didn’t have time to read thinking about things, we broke out in groups of 3 or 4 do have smaller discussion with these three prompts:
Round one: What are one or more ways in which you’ve had unearned disadvantage in your life?
Round two: What are one or more ways in which you’ve had unearned advantage in your life?
Round three: What is it like for you to sit here and talk about and hear about these experiences of unearned advantage and disadvantage?
For Diversity Club this week we are going to discuss stereotypes. What are stereotypes, and why do they exist? We have selected a technical paper of modest length to be the focus of this discussion: Susan T. Fiske. Warmth and Competence: Stereotype Content Issues for Clinicians and Researchers. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3801417/
(Since this is running from 12:30 to 1:30, it seems worthwhile to remind you that you can bring your own lunch if you would like to eat while we meet.)
Hi Again All,
This week we are going to discuss bias against women in the workplace. Here is a short reading from the American Bar Association:
I hope to see you there!
