We would like to thank the following people and groups for their help and discussions:
- Alyson Reed, David Robinson, and Brian Joseph from LSA for helping us to locate information.
- Mark K. Fiegener from NSF – for providing us with information on PhD recipients.
- Thank you to all the institutions that responded to our survey.
- Kai von Fintel – for discussion about terminology.
- Andries W Coetzee – for providing us with contacts in the LSA.
- Donca Steriade and Joe Pater for helpful suggestions about the function of the website
We would also like to acknowledge Kristen Syrett and the Committee on the Status of Women in Linguistics (COSWL). We encourage all those interested in such matters to participate in their independent data collection efforts.
We believe that the first step in addressing bias in academia is becoming educated about the issues. Here, we link to several other pages that have proven insightful in developing our own opinions about the issues. Many of these pages offer different points of view and focus on academic fields other than linguistics, placing this work in a broader perspective.
