Wilson, Marnie; Gadbois, Shannon; Nichol, Kathleen
Canadian Journal of Education, v31 n1 p211-228 2008
This article examined issues and implications associated with gender parity in the professoriate. The findings, based on the results from one Canadian institution's most recent women's committee report, emphasize the importance of monitoring progress toward gender parity by examining potential indicators of gender imbalances such as gender differences in applicant pools, starting rank and salary, and promotion application and attainment. This article addresses implications for recruitment, hiring, and formalized reporting mechanisms that can contribute to ultimately attaining gender parity in academia. (Contains 2 notes.)
