To my tenured colleagues: A thread on how we can be part of the solution, not just a precious relic of the way things used to be, and the manifestation of disproportionate privilege and inequity in the academy. Let's talk; please share and add. #cdnpse
A lot of us with tenure are watching PhDs leave without finishing, go into debt, suffer lousy adjunct jobs, destroy their mental health. We are watching our undergrad programs turned into scaled-up piecework. Our administrative structure turn managerial. What can we do?
Because *we*, the tenured, are the ones to do it. Who else? Marginalized scholars? Contingent workers? Trustees and boards? No. If anyone has the footing, power, and safety to push back, it's tenured people. What are you going to do?

“Lack of diversity persists among teaching staff at Canadian universities, colleges, report...wage gaps for women and racial minorities entrenched with little change over a decade...number of Black university teachers has barely budged in 10 years” #cdnpse…
Good to see CAUT release this report, building on our original scholarship in The Equity Myth: Racialization and Indigeneity at Canadian Universities (2017). Faculty assocs, like senior admins, have been slow to address equity, esp racial equity, biases, bullying etc. It’s urgent
3)In this 2018 Academic Women’s Association study I show that there is also a significant diversity gap in Canadian university leadership, with astonishingly few Black and Indigenous ppl: “The Diversity Gap in University Leadership 2018” #cdnpse #highered…
