Diversity, Inclusiveness, and Wellness Resources

I try to do what I can to make philosophy and the cognitive sciences more diverse, inclusive, and supportive of whole personal well-being. Here are some resources that I have found helpful and that I hope will be helpful to other researchers and teachers.

    • A note on email: While email is a very helpful tool, it often encroaches on valuable time for other work, such as writing and teaching, and increases the pressure to be "on" 24/7. In an effort to support my own well-being and quality work time and to help change these cultural pressures, I limit the amount of time I spend responding to emails and often don't check email on weekends. This means that I may respond to your email more slowly than usual. Thanks for your patience and consideration.
