I have lost count of the number of times I have had BME staff describe to me how they have watched White colleagues – whom they had welcomed, inducted, supported and helped to train – get promoted over them again and again. I have lost count of the number of time I’ve been told how “stretch opportunities” (such as acting up, secondments, and involvement in significant projects) which are the key to career progression have been filled by a tap on the shoulder followed by promotion. #SideBySide

Women are credited less in science than men

Revisiting citation justice (or yes, there appears to be bias in citation patterns). I recently I posted on citation justice and the need to be mindful of not just what papers we cite but also who we cite. I was gently nudged with a query - shouldn’t we just focus on the ideas? In an ideal world, yes! But our world isn’t perfect. Evidence suggests that all things being equal, men are cited more than women. See here: This is problematic bc citations are used in so many ways that affect careers - from hiring decisions, to retention decisions, to editorial appointments.

It’s time to act on racism in the NHS | The BMJ

In a joint BMJ and BMA investigation Zosia Kmietowicz found that medical schools are poor at recording students’ complaints of racial harassment (doi:10.1136/bmj.m420). It is sad to read that students are resigned to the likelihood that nothing will be done if they report a racial incident, so they don’t bother. Instead, they internalise the humiliation and prepare for a career where discrimination is commonplace, no doubt affecting their self esteem and their ability to perform. Action needed to close the attainment gap is in the gift of the GMC. To move things forward, the BMA has launche...

Cat Hicks: "You know what the most likely …" - Mastodon

You know what the most likely next career step in tech is for a woman my age? Leaving. It just really sits with me. When my friends leave. Which a lot of them have this year. Learning scientists like me study pathways. All opportunity is preconditioned by access. Trajectory comparisons are not full comparisons unless they include leaving. When we fixate on "getting in" and not fixing what's within, this happens. But every day, the future changes. I'm here for that.

Data Reveals An Infuriating Reason Women Over 40 Are Held Back At Work | HuffPost Life

Researchers Amy Diehl, Leanne M. Dzubinski and Amber L. Stephenson surveyed 913 women leaders who work in higher education, faith-based nonprofits, law, and health care with open-ended questions designed to uncover the different types of bias they may have experienced in their careers. The findings, which are undergoing peer review at a journal, show that gendered age biases are still alive and thriving in many workplaces. What Diehl, Dzubinski and Stephenson discovered is that there is no mythical “prime” working age or “sweet spot” for professional women. Women under 40 in the study saw...

The true cost of science’s language barrier for non-native English speakers

Researchers whose first language is not English can spend around twice as long reading an English-language scientific journal article as native speakers. For a PhD student working on their thesis, that can mean spending up to 19 additional working days per year just reading papers. English is the language of science – but precision is tough as a non-native speaker These statistics, published today in PLoS Biology1, might not be shocking, researchers say, but it’s important to measure the effects of language barriers on the careers of academics who are not fluent in English. It “is the fir...

Are you really hiring on merit? A story about hiring senior management with Diversity and Inclusion - YouTube

This animation shows the cumulative effect of racism in senior management that is based on true stories of two fictional characters, Tom and Tim. Tom and Tim have the same ability.

Women on verge of quitting IT | Information Age | ACS

However, the impact of poor performance, experiences of negative bias, burnout and a lack of leadership has many women working in IT unsure of their career path. Almost half (46 per cent) of those working in IT admit that have considered walking away from the industry in the past 18 months, while 33 per cent have thought about reducing their hours.

The Covid Pandemic And The Pandemic Of Ableist Media

“The disabled and elderly are the most likely to die from this virus.” I closed my eyes and beat back the desire to scream-cry at the news before me. It was March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had reached America, and the pandemic of Ableist Media was in full swing. I am in a unique position. I am both disabled and a professional communicator. Not only have I spent my entire life dissecting every conversation I’ve had or will have out of anxiety, but I have also decided to make a career out of it. In college I began taking media studies where my professors allowed me the opportunity to eval...

akareilly: "@klausfiend @mekkaokereke The…" -

Just look at the language around COVID-19. Politicians can say, without endangering their careers, that since only the elderly and disabled will die, you can all go back to normal. Parents who don’t vaccinate their kids would rather have dead kids than autistic kids. The word “disabled” is treated like profanity. Countries lauded for being friendly to refugees, like Canada, reject disabled immigrants.

Gender splits on MRFF research and what to do about it - Future Campus

The Department of Health reports Medical Research Future Fund gender split on grants from 2017 up to May. Chief Investigator applicants: 14 983 men and 14 512 women with funding rates for men and women both 25.7 per cent.

How the Victorian Education Department's historical child sexual abuse scandal was hidden for decades - ABC News

The story presented of Reynolds's career would soon be understood as a microcosm of the unravelling crisis of historical sexual abuse in the Victorian education system. It would reveal in granular detail the methods by which the Victorian Education Department had covered up the sexual abuse of children — methods that lawyers for survivors say have been identified in dozens of other cases.

The Latin America Early Career Earth System Scientist Network (LAECESS): addressing present and future challenges of the upcoming generations of scientists in the region | npj Climate and Atmospheric Science

Early career (EC) Earth system scientists in the Latin America and the Caribbean region (LAC) have been facing several issues, such as limited funding opportunities, substandard scientific facilities, lack of security of tenure, and unrepresented groups equality issues. On top of this, the worsening regional environmental and climatic crises call for the need for this new generation of scientists to help to tackle these crises by increasing public awareness and research.

xComedian London Hughes: ‘I made more money in one year in America than my whole life in Britain’

The Oxbridge lot are so boring. Like, I get it, hire your friends. But don't assume you know what the audience wants It wouldn’t be the last time that Hughes encountered blatant racism in her career. At a BBC radio gig, a producer asked her not to do “any Black material”. In 2013, after complaining to her co-agent that she wasn’t getting many auditions, he told her: “Black people just aren’t in this year.” They parted ways soon after. For the next five years, Hughes’s career reads like an endless game of snakes and ladders. One minute she’d be on the brink of breaking through, the next she...

Debunking Disability Employment Myths | Psychology Today

Myth: Disabled People Are Best Suited for Low-Skilled Jobs The Reality: Just like the general population, disabled people have a wide range of talents, skills, experiences, and educational backgrounds. A large-sample Canadian study indicated that college grades and graduation outcomes of disabled students are mostly identical to those of other students, and there is no reason to discourage them from pursuing challenging careers. In many countries—for example, Germany—the levels of educational achievement are higher for disabled people than for the rest of the population. This means that wh...

Promotions & diversity in the APS shows case for urgent reform

In our comprehensive research spanning 20 years and involving millions of data points, we examine promotions within the APS, focusing on gender, disability and ethnic diversity. In all of our work, we control for characteristics that might affect promotion and success in the public service. Even after accounting for these things, large discrepancies remain. The results on ethnic diversity are particularly unsettling: Public servants from NESB face lower promotion prospects throughout their careers, irrespective of when they migrated to Australia — or even if they were born in Australia ...

Baldur Bjarnason: "So, I generally don’t talk abo…" - Toot Café

So, I generally don’t talk about it but my dad throughout his career alternated between being a management consultant and a high-level manager in companies or institutions that employed thousands. Travelled a lot. First name terms with people who were apparently big name execs in Europe. The stories he tells are just horrific. Dysfunction everywhere. Inhumane decisions. Very little that anybody below the top-level execs could do about anything. And things seem to have only gotten worse.

New evidence shows how NFL discriminates against Black QBs

The NFL presents itself as America’s most cutthroat meritocracy. And yet evidence continues to show that teams screw up the single most important decision they make due to racial bias. From 2010 to 2022, teams were chronically underrating Black quarterbacks in the draft, a new statistical analysis from SFGATE shows. QBs selected in those drafts had four times better odds of reaching at least one Pro Bowl if they were Black. SFGATE’s analysis found a statistically significant gap between the rate that Black quarterbacks reached the Pro Bowl relative to their peers despite controlling for d...

service quality – Page 4 – The Sport Journal

Sport participation among Black student-athletes has steadily increased throughout the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) over the last two decades. The number of Black head coaches in Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) College Football, however, has remained stagnant and in many years declined (18). Research has stated that the presence of a defined glass ceiling, discrepancies among Blacks and Whites with regard to social capital (social mobility), and factors of intent and interest in becoming coaches have been integral in preventing many Black coaches from pursuing ...

The under-representation and experiences of elite level minority coaches in professional football in England, France and the Netherlands - Steven Bradbury, Jacco van Sterkenburg, Patrick Mignon, 2018

This article will examine the previously under-researched area of the under-representation and experiences of elite level minority (male) coaches in (men’s) professional football in Western Europe. More specifically, the article will draw on original interview data with 40 elite level minority coaches in England, France and the Netherlands and identify a series of key constraining factors which have limited the potential for and realization of opportunities for career progression across the transition from playing to coaching in the professional game. In doing so, the article will focus on ...

Calling for institutional reform by compensating early career researchers for diversity labor: Trends in Microbiology

Although institutions and funding organizations in the USA are implementing measures to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB), people with marginalized identities disproportionately drive those efforts without reward and recognition in their careers; thus, they are minority taxed. While minority tax reform is essential at all levels, this article focuses on compensation for early career researchers (ECRs) at the graduate and postdoctoral levels.

Non-White scientists appear on fewer editorial boards, spend more time under review, and receive fewer citations | PNAS

Significance Empirical evidence suggests that non-White scientists experience various forms of inequality, creating barriers to their entry and participation in academic research. We contribute to this literature by examining disparities in i) editorial board representation, ii) time spent under review, and iii) citation rates. Using a dataset of 1,000,000 papers from six publishers over the past two decades, we find fewer non-White editors than would be expected based on their share of authorship. Moreover, non-White scientists endure longer waiting times between the submission and accepta...

End Workplace Abuse

Workplace abusers do NOT want their incompetence exposed. So they often put the focus on higher performers and position THEM as incompetent to control their own image and make sure they're not outdone. The tactic typically leaves victims with harms and losses — from anxiety, depression, PTSD, or suicidal ideation to loss of a job, career, confidence, social support, marriage, home, and even life.

Achievement Relative to Opportunity: Career Hijacks in the Academy | Emerald Insight

Purpose This research investigates the impact of nonlinear career trajectories on female staff in the academy. It argues that assessment of “achievement relative to opportunity” is essential to the equitable positioning of women in the academy. Methodology/approach This qualitative study is based on extended structured interviews with 43 staff. Findings Men and women can experience career interruptions, deviations, and hijacks, but, in general, women experience more interruption, and the cumulative effect on their careers is greater. Practical implications The authors point to ways in wh...

ANU Policy Library - Guideline - Assessing achievement relative to opportunity (under review)

Achievements relative to opportunity: Assessing achievements relative to opportunity involves evaluating the quality and impact of the staff member’s achievement having regard to the applicant’s career stage and trajectory and taking into consideration the impact of relevant personal circumstances. This supports appropriate evaluation of achievements in relation to productivity, the ability to participate in certain types of activities, and the consistency of activities or output over the period of consideration.

Achievement relative to opportunity - Monash University

Achievement Relative to Opportunity (also known as 'Relative to Opportunity') is a positive acknowledgement of what a staff member can and has achieved given the opportunities available to them. It supports a more calibrated assessment of their performance. Achievement Relative to Opportunity acknowledges diverse career histories, a range of personal and professional circumstances and working arrangements. It is not about providing special consideration, diluting merit or lessening standards of performance. Applying Achievement Relative to Opportunity principles facilitates more equitable ...

Full article: Reading internationally: if citing is a political practice, who are we reading and who are we citing?

Across multiple disciplines from communication science and political science to astronomy, research has pointed to gender citation bias, racialised citation bias and the regional tilt of many international journals towards authors based in a small set of countries, including the USA, the UK and Australia (e.g., Caplar, Tacchella, and Birrer Citation2017; Dion, Sumner, and Mitchell Citation2018; Trepte and Loths Citation2020). These citation patterns not only have an effect on the quality of research publications and the breadth of perspectives and insights circulating as contributions to kn...

Sex-Linked Bias in Chances of Being Promoted to Supervisor - Lisa A. Kramer, Steph Lambert, 2001

The literature addressing gender-based discrimination in promotion decisions has primarily focused on case studies of Fortune 500 companies or scenarios in which managers are asked to make simulated promotion decisions. Such studies are limited in both scope and generalizability. This research attempts to overcome these limitations by examining a large, random sample of female and male workers. Using survival analysis, we explore the period of time from the year of hire to the year promotion to supervisor is achieved. Avoiding bias that may be associated with analyses pertaining to a partic...

Black female managers overlooked for promotion - Personnel Today

BWIL surveyed 250 professional black women across a number of industries in the UK to compare their experiences with those of their non-black female colleagues. More than four in 10 (44%) of black women do not believe they are offered the same career advancement opportunities as their non-black female colleagues, the network found, while more than two thirds (68%) have experienced racial bias at work. Black women in senior executive or senior management positions were even less likely to believe they were offered the same professional development opportunities, with 33% and 31% respective...

Battling the “headwinds”: the experiences of minoritised academics in the neoliberal Australian university: International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education: Vol 33, No 9

Academics who identify or are identified with minoritised groups in society and teach marginalised subjects are particularly prone to experiencing individual and systemic bias and discrimination which harm their wellbeing and restrict their career advancement. These challenges can be likened to “headwinds” that they must constantly battle against, whilst those belonging to dominant social groups benefit from “tailwind” effects. We critique the framing of the “ideal” academic in the neoliberalised university and argue that it entrenches the marginalisation of academics from minoritised backg...

Full article: Racism and White privilege: highly skilled immigrant women workers in Australia

Skilled immigrant women represent a source of skills for the Australian economy. However, political and historical choices have formed and reinforced new emergent diasporic spaces in a country which remains marked by the British Empire’s heritage. Drawing on 31 qualitative interviews, this article focuses on the career journeys of skilled immigrant women from the UK, India, China and the Philippines in a White Anglo-dominant society. By marking and de-neutralizing the racialized nature of Australian working spaces, the study examines how racism operates within Australian working spaces. It ...

Why don’t Employee Resource Groups work? - a different approach to diversity

Employee Resource Groups, or ERGs, have been embedded into corporate cultures since the 1970s. ERGs, even though they are run well, are generally set up by volunteers within organisations. This happens because these individuals feel underrepresented and need a safe space where they can share their lived experiences. Due to ERGs being led by volunteers, more often than not they have a lack of, or no budget – meaning being able to run events can become difficult if they are unable to bring in external speakers, or provide tea and coffee to attendees. Volunteers are also doing this in addi...

Afcon 2023: Bouchra Karboubi on being a referee, police officer in Morocco and mother - BBC Sport - - Gmail

Growing up, Karboubi loved playing football but stopped because there was no organised women's football at the time. So, she decided to go into match officiating where she saw more opportunities as a referee. Karboubi faced resistance from her family in chasing her dreams, telling UN Arab Women, external in 2021: "I come from a small conservative town; therefore, it was difficult for my family to accept the fact that I wanted to pursue my career in sports."

Universities Accord: early university offers won’t be made until later in Year 12. Is this a good idea?

The panel also noted they can favour students who already have personal or socioeconomic advantages, such as principals, careers counsellors or parents who can advocate for and write letters of recommendation on their behalf. This sort of incentivisation may prepare students for future challenges in their academic and career journeys. It does however favour the student who performs well under test conditions and whose life circumstances enable them to work consistently all year. It may also disadvantage those who already face challenges such as poor mental health, or those who are the f...

The extra shift': The unpaid emotional labour expected of women at work

Emotional labour is the unsung, often unseen, job of managing other people's feelings. "It's not just the work that runs economies," explain Rose Hackman, the author of a 2023 book on the subject. "It's the work that runs families and communities. Emotional labour is manipulating the heart in order to have an effect on clients, customers, passengers, patients. It's what creates a feeling of safety and connection, meaning and belonging within a company." It's crucial – but also taxing, and often required. Women bear the brunt. To begin, they dominate careers that demand a huge amount of emo...

The Employment Disadvantage of Mothers: Evidence for Systemic Discrimination - Tanya Carney, 2009

When their need to provide care and their need for paid employment are equally important, mothers try to combine both roles, often through part time employment, or to stagger these competing needs by taking employment breaks. Using data from the Household, Income and Labour Dynamics of Australia (HILDA) Survey1 this article analyses the resulting detriments to the ability of mothers to continue career paths across the occupational spectrum. Analysis of this data is used to argue that employment disadvantage is generated by mothers' inability to conform to `ideal worker' behaviour and theref...

Embodiment of discrimination and overseas nurses’ career progression - Larsen - 2007 - Journal of Clinical Nursing - Wiley Online Library

Discrimination towards migrant workers may, at times, be experienced as ‘blatant racism’ or, in more subtle forms, as ‘aversive racism’. It is demonstrated how such discrimination may impact on the afflicted person's sense of self, suggesting a theoretical model of the embodiment of discrimination. Discrimination not only works at an interpersonal and institutional level, but is a form of ‘symbolic violence’ that may be internalized to affect the person's ‘habitus’; it can be resisted through meaning-making activity that explains and hence objectifies and embodies the experience in a way th...

As a result, the purpose of this study is to investigate perceptions of discrimination and career advancement among African American accountants, the second largest minority group in accounting today, and reveal any differences between males and females. Although research on African American accountants exists, it does not empirically investigate male/female differences related to perceived discrimination (race and gender), perceived career curtailment, and intent to remain. To address this d...

Indirect Discrimination in Construction Organizations and the Impact on Women’s Careers | Journal of Management in Engineering | Vol 22, No 3

Over the last 20 years, equality legislation and positive action on diversity has increased awareness of the detrimental impact of sex discrimination and has begun to address harassment and inequality in many large organizations. While this may yield positive benefits for underrepresented groups working within the construction industry, it remains to be seen whether this legislative drive has overcome indirect forms of discrimination brought about by the ingrained culture and working practices of the sector. This paper explores the impact of indirect discrimination by systematically combini...

This article uses case study interviews to examine women’s experiences in higher education. It focuses on career progression, support available for promotion and particular initiatives for staff retention. The findings suggest that whilst some progress has been made to support White and Black and minority ethnic women in their career trajectories, greater change is needed in order that inclusion is embedded within institutional frameworks and strategic plans. Furthermore, clearer evidence is needed by universities to demonstrate how they are meeting their legal equality requirements as spec...

How to be an ally in the workplace: 13 ways to do it |

Many trainings and articles about microaggressions focus on how you can intervene in the moment, which is a crucial part of allyship. But in addition to intervening, there are other important ways to support people who experience microaggressions, systemic inequities and other barriers to opportunity — and one way is through microafffirmations. In contrast to microaggressions, microaffirmations are little ways that you can affirm someone’s identity; recognize and validate their experience and expertise; build confidence; develop trust; foster belonging; and support someone in their career....

But, BCG’s research shows that in addition to these structural programs, a culture of allyship is required to foster inclusion. A study of over 5,000 Canadians finds that women, the LGBTQ2+ community, and Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) employees who have allies at work are 1.6 times less likely to perceive obstacles in their day-to-day environment and twice as likely to say their workplace is bias-fr...

Full article: Participatory research: working with vulnerable groups in research and practice

Participatory research and the involvement of disabled people in the research process is a central tenet of disability studies and, along with the social model of disability, was one of the two key concepts that underpinned the discipline when it first started to emerge in academia in the mid-1980s. Whilst Mike Oliver was later to take the basic ideas of participatory research and redefine them to prioritise a focus on emancipation and challenging the oppression and disadvantage experienced by disabled people, this was in part at least to be achieved through changing the social relations of...

Q: “How did one of the most advanced economies in the world just fall down one day — and not be able to get up?” A: Demographics. Japan had an aging population and refused to let immigrants into the country in sufficient numbers to keep the economy humming. It also did not give women meaningful career opportunities. We should learn this lesson across the world and not repeat the mistake. Let in the refugees and aspiring young people to create diverse, creative, innovative economies. Provide opportunities to all.

Why Black Women in Leadership Face the Glass Cliff Effect | POPSUGAR Money & Career

The research shows that there are many obstacles for Black women both in attaining and retaining leadership roles. They report less access to mentors who can help facilitate their advancement, and if they do make it to leadership roles, often encounter the glass cliff phenomenon, she says. What's more, she adds, "these are long-standing trends in organizational settings and have not shown significant change over the last few years."

Competitive workplaces don’t work for gender equality

Ultra-competitive workplaces – places where employees battle against each other for rank, bonuses and promotions – are common in many high-status fields, including law and finance. But while having a highly competitive culture is, on its face, gender-neutral, it actually worsens gender inequality. That’s the key finding of our new study with colleague Ragan Petrie, published in the most recent issue of the ILR Review. As economists who study workplace diversity and career-family conflicts for women, we wanted to investigate how competition at work plays out in people’s lives. We couldn’t j...

White Anglo patriarchal possession in organizations: Unequal vertical career progressions among Anglo White & non‐Anglo White highly skilled immigrant women - Carangio - 2023 - Gender, Work & Organization - Wiley Online Library

Within the discussion of highly skilled immigrant women workers in organizations, dominant discourses continue to pay little attention to the gender/racial dimension in relation to career progression. Although research of skilled immigrant women has revealed important insights into how the intersection of gender, race, and class shape women's work experience, the White Anglo colonial male promotion practices inscribed on Australian organizations in relation to skilled immigration remain little researched in Australia. This article explores the differences between the career progressions of ...

Discrimination by avoidance: The underrepresentation of Indigenous Australians in leadership positions within the Australian Football League - Mahsa Khatibi, Gabriella Elgenius, Paul Turner, Justine Ferrer, 2024

This article explores the career development and underrepresentation of Indigenous Australians in leadership and management positions within the Australian Football League (AFL); it explains the continued underrepresentation as a case of ‘avoiding discrimination’. Using institutional theory, this research fills a gap in existing scholarship by contributing to understanding the mechanisms by which organisations avoid addressing underrepresentation and enforce discriminatory practices in three significant ways. First, organisations may claim equality and assume that the organisation is charac...

Football management for black former players is 'all snakes and no ladders' - BBC Sport

Non-black players were 50% more likely to get into management than black players over a 30-year period, according to research commissioned by the Black Footballers Partnership (BFP). The report by three academics looked at off-the-pitch careers of around 3,500 former footballers who played in the Premier League or Championship between 1990 and 2010.

Race-Related Differences in Promotions and Support: Underlying Effects of Human and Social Capital

Peer-review is a well-established cornerstone of the scientific process, yet it is not immune to status bias.

Women are Credited Less in Science than are Men

There is a well-documented gap in the observed number of scientific works produced by women and men in science, with clear consequences for the retention and promotion of women in science1. The gap might be a result of productivity differences2-5, or it might be due to women's contributions not being acknowledged6,7. This paper finds that at least part of this gap is due to the latter: women in research teams are significantly less likely to be credited with authorship than are men. The findings are consistent across three very different sources of data. Analysis of the first source - large...

Klan physicians in particular held a vested interest in preserving a racialized medical hierarchy and promoting reproductive surveillance in public health. By the 1920s, a symbiotic relationship developed between the organization and the medical profession. T...

The relationship of race and gender to managers' ratings of promotion potential

The purpose of this paper was to examine the relationship of race and gender to managers' ratings of promotion potential for a sample of 1268 managerial and professional employees. Hierarchial regression analysis showed that controlling for age, education, tenure, salary grade, functional area, and satisfaction with career support, both race and gender were significantly related to promotion potential. Females were rated lower than males, and Blacks and Asians were rated lower than Whites. There were no interaction effects between race and gender.
