U prof: We've got some gender equity issues in salaries

Here’s what Christopher Cramer, chairman of the faculty consultative committee, had to say about gender equity at the U.

From his report, which he read:

Another significant issue addressed over the summer was the report on gender equity in faculty salaries prepared by an outside consultant and delivered to the Provost on June 22, 2011. We discussed the conclusions and recommendations in this report with Provost Sullivan in August. In addition to addressing specific details, we expressed our appreciation for the open and consultative process that the Provost put into place upon first being presented with evidence of potential gender inequity in salaries. We look forward next to discussions of potential remedies, where warranted, and to the development of monitoring strategies that will ensure that equity remains a signal priority for compensation decisions in the future.
