Representation and Pay of Women of Color in the Higher Education Workforce. A CUPA-HR Research Brief
McChesney, Jasper
College and University Professional Association for Human Resources
The College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) has published studies on equity and diversity among higher education administrators. They have found that women and ethnic minorities--analyzed separately--continue to face disadvantages regarding representation and pay. They were thus prompted to consider the intersection of gender and ethnic minority status and what unique challenges these individuals face throughout the higher education workforce. In this report, CUPA-HR uses recent data to examine representation and pay equity for the intersection of two groups: women and individuals who identify as either Black/ African American or Hispanic/Latino. Their analyses encompass all higher education positions, separated into four broad categories: administrators, faculty, professionals, and (mainly non-exempt) staff. They describe the kinds of inequity women and ethnic minorities experience, how these inequities intersect for women of color, and how inequities differ by position type.
