Oxbridge Least Diverse

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 04 February 19 2019

February 2019

An article in The Lancet reports on Gender and ethnic diversity in leading public health universities. Analysis of staff composition at leading public health and social sciences universities in the US and the UK show persistent gaps in gender and ethnicity –, particularly in senior positions.

Interesting to note: Oxford and Cambridge in the UK are shown to have the most potent combination of white male dominance plus overall white faculty dominance. Other UK top schools like UCL and LSHTM have a white female preponderance, while schools like Chapel Hill, UC Berkeley and the University of Washington stand out in their white male dominance.
