We're recruiting participants for a study of workplace experiences for WoC scientists!

We are recruiting research participants who are women of color science faculty at the University of Illinois. We are conducting a pilot study examining workplace experiences of women of color STEM faculty, and would like to hear your experiences.

Eligible participants are 1) University faculty (either tenure-track or non-TT) 2) identify as women of color, and 3) are within the social, natural, or physical sciences, including engineering. We consider participants ‘women of color’ if they identify as a woman, and as non-white. If you meet this criteria, we hope you'll join our study.

Focus groups will be 90 minutes long. To ensure your privacy, each focus group will include participants at similar academic rank, and will not include multiple members of the same department. All participants will be entered into a lotter to win one of three $25 Amazon gift cards.

If you fulfill our participant criteria and are interested in participating, please email Dr. Michelle Rodrigues at

Thank you very much for your time! We hope this project provides valuable information to improve recruitment and retention of women of color at Illinois.
