How institutions derail the tenure of women faculty of color
Recently, on a panel for an event called Negotiating Power & Status in the Academy, I spoke about how teaching is one of the main ways that institutions derail tenure for women faculty of color. In this episode, I break down why women faculty of color are so uniquely qualified to be excellent teachers; how they benefit the institutions where they teach; how they are derailed from promotions and tenure; the impacts of this treatment; and how to fix it. Sounds like a lot, right? We better get started!
Let’s talk about teaching
Institutions derail women faculty of color’s tenure primarily via teaching. We tend to focus on grants and research, but we must not overlook the importance teaching has for tenure, especially for women faculty of color. The experiences women faculty of colour have with teaching demonstrates a gendered and racist pattern in higher education, and it needs to be addressed. This experience isn’t anecdotal; this experience is grounded in research.
In this episode, I review the research on:
