LERU advice paper on Implicit bias in academia


On 18 January 2018, the League of European Research Universities (LERU) will present new advice paper, entitled “Implicit bias in academia: a challenge to the meritocratic principle and to women’s careers– and what to do about it”.

In this paper LERU examines the impact of implicit bias on the careers of women researchers, in particular on women’s working conditions, on recruitment and career advancement processes and on research funding. The paper reviews relevant research on implicit bias, examines current practices at LERU universities and sets out possible actions to counter implicit bias.
