Number of Black UK professors rises by 25% in one year

The number of Black professors in the UK has risen by 25% in one year, according to the latest figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency. There were 40 new Black professors in the 2022–23 academic year, bringing the total to 210 (rounded to the nearest 5).

Despite the increase, Black professors still make up less than 1% of the total number, as outlined in a Nature article covering the news.

World Economic Forum launches Global Alliance for Women's Health and women's health report

The World Economic Forum and the McKinsey Health Institute have released a new insight report as part of the Forum's Women's Health Initiative, finding that closing the health gap would lead to a 1.7% increase in per capita GDP.

The new Global Alliance for Women's Health aims to respond to this report and is currently supported by 42 organisations with $55 million pledged to improve women's health outcomes.

Colonial legacies fuel unfair practices in African research

A new article on SciDevNet argues that Africa's data science ecosystem could drive innovation if research inequities are addressed.

The article also suggests that clear authorship guideline and proper acknowledgement of data generators must be adopted, and that foreign researchers in Africa must stop extracting data without acknowledging local researchers.

A toolkit for capturing representative and equitable sample in health research

A new toolkit published in Nature Medicine outlines how the systematic exclusion of particular groups from research limits the generalisability of research findings and perpetuates health inequalities.

The toolkit describes seven steps for investigators to consider in facilitating representative and equitable sample selection.

The motivating effect of monetary over psychological incentives is stronger in WEIRD cultures

New research published in Nature Human Behaviour argues that monetary incentives are stronger motivators in Western, educated, industrialised, rich and democratic (WEIRD) cultures.

According to the researchers, this finding contradicts the standard economic intuition that people from low income countries should be more driven by money.
