Why do women in the faculty still face biases and an unwanted reception in a large part of higher education? What can institutions do about it?

Q: What are the main problems that remain for women in academic recruitment?

A: In hiring, the implicit bias is a major concern because it gives way to how the files of the faculty are read, interpreted and judged. The bias enters when people base their judgments in stereotypes not recognized in the evaluation of people. Because it shapes its previous opportunities, the bias also influences the credentials that women later contribute to their requests for academic jobs, as if they have received prestigious graduated or postdoc scholarships or worked in high status research groups. When women are excluded from informal social networks, they do not receive interior scoop on news and useful opportunities; You may not receive strategic advice or sponsors and mentoring invitations. As a result of a long experience with such disadvantages, women can be promoted less boldly, which can be interpreted as a lack of strength or confidence.

Often, these faculty are asked to carry out a more institutional and disciplinary service to represent their groups, to teach high registration courses, support student interest groups and to disclose the community so that they can be models to follow for the students. In fact, they can find it convincing to do these things, but this choice becomes a catch-22 if they are then penalized by making a less traditional scholarship while performing more teaching, service and disclosure.

Q: Your book talks about "Restart" workplaces. What would that look like?
