Women face a ‘concrete ceiling’ for top jobs at elite universities, study shows

Although women make up under a quarter of presidents at elite research universities, they constitute nearly 40 percent of all provosts, or senior administrators at higher education institutions. This finding underscores that there is no shortage of women capable of serving in a university’s top job — usually called president or chancellor — but that systemic bias has prevented them from doing so, Eos’s president, Andrea Silbert, told The 19th. Eos is a private philanthropic organization that focuses on gender equity and diversity in leadership.
