Some Links

Hopefully I’ll write some more about these in a bit.

  • Bonnie Kent pointed me to this UCI website which records a whole bunch of stats about diversity in the profession. Here are just four tables that should be of some interest, and again hopefully something that I’ll comment on more down the track.
