US survey finds women in PSE feel passed over, have fewer advancement opportunities: Study

April 4, 2022
A new survey of 10,594 faculty at American postsecondary institutions has found that 28% of women respondents believed that they had not received a promotion or opportunity due to their gender. This was around double the rate for working women in the US in 2013, and that Hispanic and Asian female faculty and staff were more likely to feel passed over due to their gender than others. When asked about advancement opportunities, only 23% said they had the same advancement opportunities as others with the same experience and only 35% of all female faculty and staff felt they were paid fairly for their work.
