NCLR Co-director Dr Reremoana Theodore and NCLR Investigator Dr Jesse Kokaua recently co-authored a paper entitled 'Glass ceilings in New Zealand universities: Inequities in Māori and Pacific promotions and earnings'.
The study found that Māori and Pacific men and also women academics, compared with non-Māori non-Pacific men academics, had significantly lower odds of being an associate professor or professor (professoriate) or of being promoted, and had lower earnings. These inequities were not explained by research performance (measured by PBRF scores), age or field, and remained over time, particularly for women.
