Insidehighered.com recently reported on John Hopkins University's 2006 Report of the Committee on the Status of University Women, in which JHU outlines its plans to "achieve a 50% representation of women in senior faculty and leadership positions and gender equity with respect to every measure of career satisfaction and advancement" by the year 2020. Presently women constitute 36% of faculty members, 18% of full profesors and 15% of department heads. JHU says parity in leadership is more realistic first step because "leadership turns over much more frequently than faculty."
