Few Women Win New Academic Chairs
American Association for the Advancement of Science
OTTAWA--A new report shows that women are seriously underrepresented in a fledgling program to help Canada retain its best academic talent. In October 1999 the government committed $585 million to create 2000 new posts under the Canada Research Chairs program. A report looking at the first four classes shows that women, who represent 25% of the total academic pool, have received just under 15% of the 532 chairs.
