The University of Texas at Austin has released a study showing large gaps in pay, promotions and representation between male and female professors in the university’s academic departments.
The study, titled “Final Report of the Gender Equity Task Force,” was conducted by a 22-member task force headed by computer science professor J. Strother Moore and government professor Gretchen Ritter, who also serves as director of the university’s Center for Women’s and Gender Studies.
The task force’s detailed recommendations for reducing the gaps included supplemental funding for pay, improved procedures for awarding merit raises and endowed chairs and changes in work and family policies.
In addition, the task force recommended a gender-equity plan to address “hiring, promotion, salaries and governance.”
The report recommends a five-to-10-year plan that includes “a timeline, an annual budget, ongoing accountability mechanisms and a budget justification.”
