This template was developed by UVA CHARGE to provide departments with demographic data (gender and race/ethnicity) of their school, department, peer departments, the PhD and post doc pipelines, and their last candidate pool during a hire. The template is prepopulated with formulas to calculate percentages and auto-produce graphs from that data comparing these variables, and includes instructions for use.
