this year I spent some time coordinating MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) Warwick (the local chapter of an International Network that foster inclusiveness and equality in academia and in philosophy in particular). It has been a challenging year and I am proud of the activities I managed to put in place (e.i. the 1st Midlands MAP Festival). Not being an activist myself, now I wonder how do people in academia perceive this type of efforts? can this type of initiative have an impact?
