uToronto celebrates success, acknowledges areas for improvement with gender equity report

October 3, 2016

More women are joining and staying at the University of Toronto than they were ten years ago, yet the university still has several areas in need of improvement, according to a new report released by uToronto. The Gender Equity and Pathways to Leadership report notes that a larger proportion of women were hired, tenured, and promoted in 2014-15 compared to 2004-05. It also notes, however, that women are still underrepresented among senior faculty ranks and senior faculty hires, and that despite being successful at securing interviews, women tend to be less successful than men at obtaining offers at uToronto. Vice-President and Provost Cheryl Regehr says she expects the report to spur conversation at the university’s three campuses and to help administrators improve the gender makeup of their faculties. uToronto | Report
