New Site Visit Program for Women and Minorities in Philosophy

Via Feminist Philosophers, an announcement on a new Site Visit Program designed to improve the climate for women and minorities, which is supported by the APA Committee on the Status of Woman. (Wonder why the APA didn’t involve the Diversity Committee, on which I serve? Not a complaint, just there’s great people on the committee whose input I’m sure would have been welcomed.) Applications are sought to do training for these site visits. Certainly a positive step, and I wonder if there’s anything like it in other disciplines. It’s also not clear from the program page if site visits will be done only by department invitation, or, if not, what would trigger such a visit.
