Ask the grumpies: gender and power

Rose asks:

What are the current trends with gender and race on corporate boards and what is having impact? What are current  trends of who is attending and graduating from college and salaries by gender and race? What about graduate school. Please include % of foreign students involved. Same question about med schools today versus 25 and 50 years ago. Are more/any med schools opening today? Same about Vet Schools.

Diversity improves board performance.  Here’s Catalyst with information on gender trends. Here’s the washington post.  They’re doing less well with minority groups.

Here are college enrollment rates by race and gender.  Here are college graduation rates from the same site, though they’re from 2017 which seems a bit outdated.

Here is information on graduate school enrollment.  It also includes information on international students.

This is the breakdown for medical schools graduates for 2019, and here is enrollment for 2018.  Here’s a report on gender.  Here’s an article that compares 1980 to 2016.

Yes, there have been new medical schools in the US.  There are fewer new veterinary schools, but there have been some.

    Many of the new medical schools are for profit, and have a dismal rate of matching students with residency programs when the students graduate (10-20% unmatched). Given we have a physician shortage, this depresses the hell out of me. The real bottleneck in the production of doctors the cap on residency slots by CMS. So, we are in effect producing more medical school graduates with nowhere to send them.

    The 2019 NCSES report on women, minorities and persons with disabilities in science and engineering might also be of interest when it comes to this topic – definitely numbers there for who attends various STEM grad programs.

    THANK YOU. As I feared, no wonder some men are so angry at women. Keep asking your elected officials to pass the women’s rights amendment. We are in real danger these days of losing even more ground and need legal constitutional protection.
