Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) ideology has spread rapidly through institutions of higher education in the United States. The most alarming spread has been that which infects the natural sciences, where it undermines the norms of open discourse, objectivity, devotion to evidence, and intellectual independence that constitute robust science.
This webinar features the virtual launch of our new report Ideological Intensification: A Quantitative Study of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in STEM Subjects at American Universities. The study examines 100 college and university websites and Twitter feeds, the content of four major academic associations, and the grants awarded by the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and the Ford Foundation, and the scholarly literature contained in PubMed, arXiv, Google Scholar, and Web of Science.
The discussion includes Mason Goad, Junior Researcher at the National Association of Scholars and author of Ideological Intensification; Nathan Honeycutt, Research Fellow at the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression, and a founder of the Society for Open Inquiry in Behavioral Science; and Luana Maroja, Professor of Biology at Williams College in Massachusetts.
The discussion is moderated by J. Scott Turner, Director of the Diversity in the Sciences Project.
