Minorities and Philosophy

The Marc Sanders Foundation aims to encourage the broadest and most diverse range of talented people to take an interest in philosophy. To that end, the Foundation is presently sponsoring “Minorities and Philosophy” (MAP), a grassroots program specifically designed to help address the underrepresentation of women and minorities in philosophy.

MAP is a collection of working groups in philosophy departments that aim to address the problems women and minority students face in their developing careers as philosophers. MAP funds talks, seminars, mentorship events, workshops, and more. A full list of events and projects is available at mapforthegap.com/events. Primarily led by graduate students, MAP now has 60 chapters in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
