At Murray State, women represent 37% of Assistant Professors, 23% of Associate Professors and 20% of Full Professors in STEM disciplines. These percentages suggest that not only are women not being hired at comparable rates to their male colleagues, they are not experiencing the same rate of tenure or promotion. We believe unconscious bias in tenure and promotion processes contributes to reduced representation of women and URMs at higher ranks just as it contributes to underrepresentation in the recruitment and hiring of Assistant Professors. Thus, we see a need for implicit bias training for tenure and promotion committees as well as for search committees at Murray State.
