Supporting Women Academics During Covid
The pandemic has profoundly impacted the professional and personal lives of women academics. Shouldering increased demands of childcare, eldercare, and student emotional support, female faculty members are reporting higher levels of stress and lower research productivity, and are submitting fewer research papers for publication. How can colleges support women as they grapple with changing professional and personal demands?

Hosted by Liz McMillen, The Chronicle’s executive editor, the virtual forum will include a panel of experts to discuss the unequal effects on women and offer potential solutions.

- What barriers do female faculty members currently face as a result of the pandemic?
- Beyond extending the tenure clock, what measures can colleges take?
- What can colleges do to consider the needs of contingent faculty who are women?

Panelists include:
- Vineet Arora, Herbert T. Abelson Professor of Medicine and Assistant Dean for Scholarship and Discovery, University of Chicago
- Jessica Calarco, Associate Professor of Sociology, Indiana University
- Robinson W. Fulweiler, Professor of Biology, Boston University
- Henrika McCoy, Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Student Services and Associate Professor of Social Work, University of Illinois Chicago
- Joya Misra, Professor of Sociology and Public Policy and Director of the Institute for Social Science Research, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
