Description & Coverage
Description:

Women in the Academy are raising issues of pay parity, equal representation on committees, increased leadership positions, stories of resilience, and mentorship espousing changes at all levels including teaching, research, and administration. These strategies demand interrogation, and larger questions are being asked about the place of women empowerment worldviews in the dominant intellectual traditions of the Academy. Further, the trend to make changes requires an exploration of new transformational approaches that draw on critical theory to resist discrimination, sexism, and racism and support resistance and sustainable empowerment strategies.

Critical Reflections and Politics on Advancing Women in the Academy is a critical scholarly publication that seeks to make the Academy responsive and inclusive for women advancement and sustainable empowerment strategies by broadening the understanding of why women in the Academy are overlooked in leadership positions, why there is a pay parity deficit, and what is being done to change the situation. Featuring a wide range of topics such as mentorship, curriculum design, and equality, this book is ideal for policymakers, academicians, deans, provosts, chancellors, administrators, researchers, and students.

The book clearly demonstrates the common experiences of women in the academy wherever they are situated...Critical Reflections on Advancing Women in the Academy is a must-read for anyone currently leading, working, or learning in post-secondary education."

"I highly recommend this book. It is engaging, accessible, and wide-ranging. The book addresses issues of systemic racism and sexism in academia, including science, sport, social media, and university governance with contributors drawn from Canada, the United States, New Zealand and Australia. The authors ground their chapters in relevant scholarship, while they provide deeply personal stories about their successes and the challenges they face."
