*Topic and aim*

Specific social groups are underrepresented in many academic disciplines, including philosophy. The overall aim of the workshop is to gain a better understanding of how and to what extent:

- exclusionary social interactions shape the philosophical discipline.
- explicit (e.g., thematic or methodological) biases play a role in philosophy.
- implicit (e.g., thematic or methodological) biases play a role in philosophy.
- different social groups are affected by the identified exclusionary factors.
- the current environment of academic philosophy can be improved.
