Views from above the glass ceiling: does the academic environment influence women professors' careers
Views from above the glass ceiling: does the academic environment influence women professors' careersAuteurs: Karin Sanders, Tineke Willemsen en Carla Millar
Using data from 188 female full professors from all 14 Dutch universities this study examines whether skewed sex ratios in the environment and the absence of a women-friendly environment are related to their career path experiences and to their perception of the general ease of women's obtaining a professorship. Results from multi-level
analyses show a positive relationship between the perception of women-friendly environment and both the experience of their own career path, and the perceived ease with which other women could become a full professor. Moreover results show that the higher the percentage of women professors in the academic field the stronger the relationship between perception of women friendliness and the experienced ease with which they became a full professor.
