Michael Tooley (Colorado) writes (regarding the data below the fold):
I was looking over the membership of the Board of the APA, and of their "Current Initiatives and Task Forces" committees. These committees look to me to be very unbalanced.
Are men less able to discuss "best practices", or to formulate a code of conduct?!

I've opened comments, in any case anyone does want to comment. One possibility, of course, is that men are less interested in volunteering for these committees. More worrisome, to my mind, is not the gender imbalance, but that some of the people on these committees have, through their past actions and words, demonstrated poor judgment and contempt for other important professional values. (Not being an APA member, I do not, however, get too exercised about these things, but APA members may feel differently.)
