Scientific Advancement Click to register We know that a greater diversity of scientists is a matter of fairness, but could it also be a crucial vehicle for scientific progress? Greater diversity can enable a richer discourse of different perspectives and approaches and even allow us to see more complex interconnections. These different perspectives are particularly important in policy discussions for social sciences; for example, in monetary policy, housing market policy, changes in social provision, social and economic wellbeing, stability of communities, regional industrial development, and inequality. Rhonda Media How’s the economy? vs. how’s the economy for each of us? Listen to Kai Ryssdal, host of MarketPlace, discuss the importanct of #disaggregatingdata with our President. Disaggregate Data Show Me The Data, But Disaggregate It First

Disaggregating data moves us away from gender-bias (where men are the norm) and racial-bias (where Whites are the norm) in how we report data. Studies that use an intersectional approach acknowledge the complex diversity of lived experiences of the U.S. population. The ability to do that is crucial when you’re trying to provide critical care in a crisis such as the one we’re in.

About WISER


Founded on International Woman’s Day 2016, the Women’s Institute for Science, Equity and Race (WISER) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)3 research institute. WISER’s mission is to expand women-focused policy research to include the social, economic, cultural and political well-being of Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American and Multiracial women.

WISER believes a microanalysis approach, the disaggregation of data by race, ethnicity and gender will draw different conclusions for each group as opposed to the broad umbrella of “women of color”. Using the term women of color assumes that Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American and Multiracial women are a homogenous group and produces ineffective policies that do not address the needs of the most vulnerable.

WISER advocates for a society where policy research is inclusive of the needs of Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American and Multiracial women. We believe the well-being of Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American and Multiracial women is vital for economic progress.
