What is this project? This project establishes a directory to help highlight researchers in the Evolutionary Human Sciences who identify as belonging to one or more underrepresented minority groups. To do so, we collect and display self-nominations using a Google form.
Who can self-nominate? Anyone who identifies with a group that is underrepresented in the Evolutionary Human Sciences can self-nominate. This includes people who identify with an underrepresented race, ethnicity, country, gender, sexual orientation, have a disability, are a veteran, and more.
What disciplines are included? The directory also includes a wide range of fields/disciplines. If your research focus is relevant to an evolutionary approach to studying humans, your discipline is included. This is true even if you study a species or system other than humans and human ancestors (for example, animal behavior).
Do I have to specify my status to self-nominate? The short answer is no. The self-nomination form includes a variety of categories that you can use to identify yourself in the directory. However, you can also leave questions blank, or you can choose to identify yourself as belonging to an underrepresented group (in general) without specifying what the group is. We think this is an important option for people who may want to participate without being forced to "out" their specific status.
