Philosophy has one of the least gender-balanced and diverse demographics in the Humanities. It has also shown a widespread deference to unofficial program rankings, used despite profound methodological defects. I suggest that these problems are significantly linked: notions of eliteness and hierarchy in Philosophy impede efforts for inclusiveness and diversity.
