Black women remain grossly underrepresented in academic psychology departments at major American universities. With better representation, their intellectual contributions to research, practice, and education in the discipline could significantly expand the margins of the field. Given the positive effect of Black faculty on priming the pipeline of graduate students, increasing the number of Black faculty would likely improve the recruitment and retention of Black graduate students. A pilot mentoring group designed specifically for Black female psychologists with a commitment to academic research careers provided significant beneficial experiences and demonstrated good success in the desired direction.
