Description
The University of Alberta policy, “Opening Doors: A Plan for Employment Equity,”1 has been in effect for 19 years, since its approval by the Board of Governors on the 7 January 1994. Has the rate of diversity hiring, including of female faculty, changed since its adoption? Has the rate of diversity hiring bridged the gender gap at the University of Alberta? This AASUA Equity Report analyzes the 2011 University of Alberta Employment Equity Census data for 17 faculties2 and finds the following: First, there is a gender gap at all ranks and levels. Male professors outnumber women 2:1.Second, the gender gap is most significant at the full professor rank, where the majority of male professors are concentrated; the majority of female professors are at the assistant and associate professor levels. Most significant, there are more male full professors than the entire female professoriate. As well, male full professors outnumber male new scholars and mid-career scholars by almost 2:1, meaning most male faculty at the University are concentrated at the highest rank. Third, the gender gap varies across the 17 faculties examined in this report. The most significant gender gaps are in 8 faculties that have between 10 to 30% female professors. The 8 include the faculties of Science, Engineering, Business, Medicine & Dentistry, Augustana, Law, School of Public Health, and Physical Education & Recreation.
