As we transition back to campus and embark on a new normalcy before fall, it is critically important that we remember that while all in academia were impacted by the pandemic, not everyone shouldered the burden equally. The literature suggests that extra household burdens likely impacted the productivity of women, especially women of color the most. This week’s ADVANCE Weekly Roundup article focuses on how women faculty of color have shouldered the burden during the pandemic and suggests ways in which we can begin to mitigate these added impacts to productivity.
The ADVANCE Weekly Roundup is brought to you by ADVANCE at Michigan Tech, which is an NSF-funded initiative dedicated to improving faculty career success, retention, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
