Disrupting Disparities in Academic Workloads Workshop

 

February 10, 2021
12:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET

The unequal distribution of faculty workload is one of the most important, yet least discussed injustices that shape faculty member experiences on campus. In particular, women and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) faculty face unusually high service, teaching, and mentoring workloads. The pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities. These inequitable workloads have negative impacts on faculty morale as well as research productivity and contributes to faculty turnover. To be inclusive and equitable, campuses must identify and dismantle systems that perpetuate unequal workloads.

This workshop, drawing on research from a five-year, 50-department research project examining workload inequalities, will help participants assess transparency, clarity, credit, and context in workload allocation and rewards. Participants will determine at least one condition they seek to improve as they allocate and reward labor. They will identify policies and practices to accomplish that goal.
