Despite significant progress in recent decades, the recruitment, advancement, and promotion of women in academia remain low. Women represent a large portion of the talent pool in academia, and receive >50% of all PhDs, but this has not yet translated into sustained representation in faculty and leadership positions. Cardel et al. (2020) describe the ‘‘chutes’’ that impede women’s promotion at all stages of their careers and provide feasible recommendations or ‘‘ladders’’ for addressing these issues.
