It explores some of the policies that impact faculty women in two settings, the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Langara College, both in Vancouver, Canada. The author of the paper is a student at UBC and an instructor at Langara. The paper presents various possibilities for further research on this topic and concludes that the institutions should consider offering more parental leave-time and the option of a part-time tenure track.
