Networks are the infrastructure of our social and professional life and
also of modern information systems where billions of documents and
entities are interlinked. However, not all nodes are equal in these
networks. Often we observe attributes (e.g. gender or ethnicity) that
define the group membership of a node. In this talk I will explore the
role of minorities in social networks and information networks, provide
empirical evidence for the disadvantage of minorities and discuss
factors that may place minorities at a disadvantage.
