Men and women are perceived differently, and those perceptions can be damaging in a professional context. Unconscious bias expressed within work environments can introduce "micro-inequities" that impede career progression for women compared to men. This study examines title prefixes for faculty in the human resources database of a large…

Craft, Christy Moran; Maseberg-Tomlinson, Jo – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2015
While many scholars have written about the experience of academic motherhood in higher education, with their research revealing a number of challenges faced by academic mothers, none have presented an in-depth view of the transition of returning to work after maternity leave. For this reason, the authors used a narrative inquiry approach to…

Yakaboski, Tamara; Hunter, Liz; Manning-Ouellette, Amber – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2014
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) of 2010 (P.L. 118-148) has already changed college students' health care options and has a larger impact on women as they outnumber men in college enrollment and require unique services. Through a feminist policy framework, we discuss how the PPACA impacts college women's health and…

In 2012 The University of Portsmouth piloted their first Global Development Leadership program for women in Science and Technology faculties.

Turner, Paaige K.; Norwood, Kristen; Noe, Charlotte – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2013
Despite progress, women are still disproportionally underrepresented in leadership positions in higher education. Women must contend with a glass ceiling, which we argue is constituted by discourses of impossibility and femininity. These discourses discourage women from recognizing their qualifications, continuing to develop skills, and making a…
