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

Only 38 percent of elite research universities contacted for the gender equity report shared their board diversity data. From the data the study authors could obtain, they found that only 26 percent of governing board chairs are women. Individuals often become governing board members because of their political connections or financial assets and not because they reflect the diversity of the students they represent, Silbert said. Until governing board members include more women, they are unlikely to prioritize promoting women to positions of power at universities, she said. 
Silbert said the Department of Education should start collecting this data.
