Gendering of Service

You are here

Women (and minorities) are asked to serve on committees, in part to help fulfill the requirement for diverse committees. The evidence is mounting that there is a disproportionate time spent with service by women than men and this can stagnate careers. Good mentors are aware of this and can help protect women faculty and be a part of the institutional transformation that rewards leadership in service roles as part of the tenure and promotion process.
