Women Should not Mentor Women in Academia? The Struggle for Equity and Inclusion Continues

In November 2020, a study published by Nature Communications concluded, after analysis of an extraordinary amount of data on the publication of scientific papers, that the careers of female academicians would be best served if they were mentored by males rather than other females. An understandable uproar resulted from the conclusions presented in the article, and it was soon retracted by the publisher. However, the damage done to the concept of strong mentorship by this kind of message being disseminated under the guise of scholarly work must be addressed and repaired. We will discuss the faulty premises underlying the conclusions of the article and revisit ways to combat the prejudices that lead to these types of biased interpretations of data.
