Almost all their flyout candidates are women. Ljl.
Northwestern doing diversity hiring this year?

Four candidates doing job market talks from January 12 to January 21. Two men (Zachary Bleemer and Christopher Campos) and two women.

7 total. 5 females. 2 males.

Quick, what’s the probability of getting 5heads in 7 coin flips?
Not as small as you probably think.Since I have a Matlab open then assuming p=0.5 it's 16.41%. Not sure binomial is appropriate distribution here since the number of trials is not exogenously fixed.
In any case, the truth to be told if out of 7 flyouts they have 5 females there is no chance they will hire a man. It will be a hell to explain to HR and the Dean why they had 5 females out of 7 candidates but hired a man.
