Harvard-logo_7Judith D. Singer, senior vice provost for faculty development and diversity at Harvard University, reports that for the first time the university has reached gender parity in junior faculty hires. During the 2014-15 academic years, 31 of the 62 new junior faculty members hired at Harvard are women.
