The Scholarly Kitchen: 'Reducing the Burden of Diversity Tax: The Tax No One Talks About'

Chhavi Chauhan from the American Society for Investigative Pathology, Shaina Lange from ACS Publications, and Tony Chen from Wiley write the following in the first in a series of guest posts on The Scholarly Kitchen blog:

Though tasks that we are passionate about and that align with our personal strengths make us undisputed contenders to support or even lead [planning and organizing] efforts, oftentimes they may come at a personal cost. Through this series of posts, we aim to shed light on a … phenomenon that affects all industries, including scholarly communications: diversity tax. We will highlight the impact of this ‘tax’ and make recommendations for how individuals as well as organizations can minimize the burden on individual contributors while furthering their personal career paths.

In this first post, we will explain what diversity tax is, why we need to be aware of it, and how it negatively impacts those in underrepresented communities. The remaining posts in this four-part series will focus on individual contributors, and offer recommendations to those individual contributors, as well as their organizations and allies, on how to balance diversity-related activities with traditional career goals and ensure that they are recognized as an important aspect of career development—minimizing the negative impact while maximizing the engagement (and benefits) for all stakeholders.

For more information, read the blog post.
