This new research from HERS, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, and the Center for Creative Leadership documents the leadership journeys of 35 women presidents,
chancellors, provosts and vice presidents. Their stories offer a clear path forward for colleges, universities and policy leaders at the local, state and federal levels to make significant changes in the number of women – especially women of color – who are positioning and positioned right now to enter these top academic jobs. f

THERE STILL AREN'T enough women at business schools. While schools have made progress over the past five years bringing in more women as students, faculty, and administrators-women are still underrepresented at virtually every level. Not only that, their salaries lag behind those of their male peers.
While the gains are to be applauded, the inequality still needs to be recognized and addressed. When women are not well-represented at all ranks and in all roles in the business school, students do not see diversity reflected in either their faculty or their school leaders. Not only that, the institution suffers, because it will not benefit from the diverse perspectives and approaches that lead to better decisions and better results.
