AAUW is teaming up with the Eos Foundation on a panel discussion and a compelling new report, The Women’s Power Gap at Elite Universities: Scaling the Ivory Tower.
Thursday, January 20, 2022, 4:00-5:30 p.m. ET
Women are underrepresented in virtually all leadership positions within 130 of the nation's most elite research universities, according to a new report from the Eos Foundation's Women's Power Gap Initiative and AAUW. While women make up nearly 40% of the provost and dean roles that typically feed into senior academic positions, they account for only 22% of presidents, 10% of system presidents, and 26% of board chairs. Women of color are nearly absent at the top altogether, comprising a mere 5% of presidents. Join us for a discussion of these alarming statistics and a call to action for systemic change.
