Work-Family Balance

The second and third points of leakage are at the associate and full professorship stages, where, again, among those married women (both with and without young children) who secured tenure track positions, a disproportionately high number do not advance to the next professional level.

Why is this happening? In their responses to the President's Work and Family Survey active UC ladder-rank faculty frequently cited considerable difficulties in achieving a balance between work and family. These difficulties appear to be especially pressing for women faculty. The data collected in this survey has allowed us to isolate one key reason for the leaks in the academic pipeline: the work-family balance.
