Academics insist we're above gender bias, that objectivity is what we do best. I'll present findings from two recent national studies suggesting that faculty give greater weight to the intellectual contributions of men than women. In one study, bias is strongest in high-paying fields and in private institutions. We'll identify ways to reduce bias and protect oneself from it.
