Oh damn :-/ I was just gonna ask for the info (been traveling and could reply only now). That’s really interesting, is this info published somewhere online? If not, it would maybe be worthwhile to make a post on this here and discuss both the reasons for the predominantly male community, as well as ideas for how to make it more gender-balanced.
I’d be very interested in possible relations between the lack of gender balance and the topic of representation discussed in another recent thread. For instance, it’d be interesting to see whether non-male EAs find the forum insufficiently focused on causes which they find more important, or largely focused on issues that they do not find as important.
We haven’t posted a gender breakdown by group yet. I can see if there may be ways to follow this up as part of our forthcoming 2018 EA Survey work.
That would be great!
