Leadership Toolkit: COVID-19
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic made visible typically hidden workload disparities among faculty by race/ethnicity, LGBTQ+, and gender as well as blurred lines between work and family, disproportionately impacting those in caregiving roles. The effects are manifest in scholarly productivity and sometimes in teaching evaluations and therefore should be considered in annual faculty reviews as well as in consideration of promotion and tenure, including external reviewer letters.
