Gender bias in STEM tenure track

    These authors determined that tenure-track women in STEM were at parity with men in the same fields when it comes to grant funding, journal acceptances and recommendation letters.

    Women had an advantage in the hiring process for these tenure-track jobs, though the evidence shows a bias against women in teaching evaluations and salaries. The salary gap was 9 cents on the dollar, but shrank to less than 4 cents when controlling for experience, type of institution and productivity.

    Author Williams said "the discourse about sexism in higher education can discourage some women from choosing a career in the academy".
