Melbourne University advertises female-only jobs in bid to remedy gender imbalance in maths

There is no academic subject that is more meritocratic, and less discriminatory, than math. What this college is doing is wrong.

For their entire careers at this university, these women will be known as the math professors who got hired not because of their abilities at math, but because of their gender.

What this school is doing is condescending and sexist, and it reinforces the false stereotype that woman are not good at math.

Melbourne University advertises female-only jobs in bid to remedy gender imbalance in maths

May 18, 2016

The University of Melbourne has taken the extraordinary step of opening up jobs to female applicants only in an attempt to drive change in the male-dominated area of mathematic academia.

Only about a quarter of all mathematics academics in Australia are female, and the university is now advertising three positions in its School of Mathematics and Statistics for female applicants only.

It is believed to be the first time it has limited applications to women only for permanent academic positions.

The jobs, in pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics, may range in level from lecturer, to senior lecturer, to associate professor, depending on the candidate’s experience.

The head of the School of Mathematics and Statistics, Professor Aleks Owczarek, said the decision had been taken to promote change.

“We clearly have an issue with attracting female applicants appropriately to our workforce,” Professor Owczarek said.

“So this is an agenda to attempt to address that.” Reaching gender equality in maths stubbornly slow

Women are notoriously underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, but mathematics has the lowest representation of all studies.

Lesley Ward, an Associate Professor of Mathematics at the University of South Australia, and chair of the Women in Maths Special Interest Group of the Australian Mathematical Society (WIMSIG), told ABC’s PM it gets worse the more senior the rank.

“At the first academic rank of associate lecturer it’s still only 30 per cent women, by the time you get up to the second highest rank of associate professor it’s down to under 20 per cent women,” Professor Ward said.

“At the highest rank, of professor, it’s 9 per cent women, according to the most recent data we have from 2014.”

She said there were many reasons for the low percentages, but a key cause was unconscious bias which sees men promoted more often than women.

Because of that, Professor Ward welcomed The University of Melbourne’s move, saying change so far had been slow.

“There have been many measures taken by universities and by individuals and by professional societies to help the advancement of women and the achievement of gender equity in these disciplines,” she said.

“In some disciplines it’s been harder than others and in mathematics it’s one where it’s taken a particularly long time.”

Equal Opportunity Act allows for positive discrimination

The University of Melbourne positions have been advertised using a special measure of the Victorian Equal Opportunity Act.

“The use of this kind of special measure that we’re using has been used with regards to Indigenous employment,” Professor Owczarek said.

“For this kind of positions, permanent continuing academic positions, I believe it might be the first time it’s been used,” he added.

Discrimination lawyer Rowan Skinner said the Act allows organisations to take actions to promote equality.

“The Act specifically permits an organisation to engage in what is overtly a discriminatory act, but for the purposes of ensuring that there is equal opportunity overall,” Mr Skinner said.

NPR unintentionally reveals the existence of “black privilege”

This three minute audio segment from NPR is called “Blind hiring, while well meaning, may create unintended consequences.”

It says that “blind hiring” is a process where job applicants are interviewed by computer instead of in person, so there is no bias regarding gender or race. Applicants are given online tests such as doing a math problem, or writing computer code.

I think this is a great idea.

In the NPR audio segment, the “unintended consequence” of “blind hiring” is explained by a black female college student, who complains that under “blind hiring,” she would not get special treatment.

In the comment section, someone wrote:

“The response of the black female student to blind hiring shows that in today’s job market male whites are not the privileged group.”

I think that commentor makes a great point.

It appears as if NPR has unintentionally revealed the existence of “black privilege.”

The New York Times accidentally admitted that affirmative action hurts black college students

This recent New York Times article talks about a black student at Amherst College whom the New York Times claims is “unprepared academically” for the particular college that she is attending.

So I’m trying to think of all the reasons why someone who is “unprepared academically” for this particular college would get admitted to this particular college. Here are the reasons that I can think of:

1) Their parents made a big donation to the college.

2) They were admitted for their athletic ability.

3) They were admitted as a result of affirmative action.

If anyone here can think of any other reason, please post it in the comment section.

Anyway, it’s that third reason that I’m interested in for this discussion.

Without specifically mentioning affirmative action, the New York Times article makes a good case against affirmative action.

The student in question even says “I always feel like I need to prove to other people that I do belong here.”

I would respond to that by saying that anyone who is “unprepared academically” for this particular college does in fact not “belong” at this particular college.

Please note that no one said this student was “unprepared academically” for college in general. Instead, this student is “unprepared academically” for this particular college.

But there are thousands of other colleges in the U.S.

If affirmative action did not exist, then instead of getting admitted to this particular college, this student would have been admitted to a different college – one for which she was “prepared academically” instead of one for which she was “unprepared academically.”

Attending a college that is too difficult, is far worse than attending a college that matches your abilities. Affirmative action is causing terrible harm to these students. Colleges should get rid of affirmative action, so that each student will be matched up with a college that matches his or her own abilities.

Here is the relevant text from the New York Times article:

One young woman said she went to sleep at night wishing she would not wake up. Imani Marshall, a senior pre-med student from Chicago, who is black, felt a shudder of recognition and started to cry.

Ms. Marshall, who went to a selective public school in Chicago and came to Amherst on full financial aid, said she had felt unprepared academically and socially for Amherst. Yet she felt that by asking for help, she would undermine not just her own standing but that of her entire race.

“I feel like an impostor,” Ms. Marshall said the other day over lunch at the central dining hall. “I close myself off a lot of times from help. I always feel like I need to prove to other people that I do belong here.”

Councilwoman wants police department to hire black police officers who can’t read well enough to do their job

A city councilwoman in Oakland, California, wants the police to lower their standards on their written test so more blacks can become police officers. The exam measures reading comprehension and other things that are necessary for the police to properly to their job.

You know what? I’m sick of fighting against this kind of nonsense. And I don’t live in that city anyway. So let them adopt her proposal. Let’s see what happens when a city hires police officers who don’t know how to read at the level that their job requires. It would make a great experiment.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

An Oakland City Council member who wants the Police Department to hire more African American officers has focused her attention on the written exam for new applicants — which is the point where many candidates get eliminated.

Councilwoman Desley Brooks suggested the department could consider lowering the passing score on the written test or getting rid of the exam altogether.

The exam… measures reading comprehension, and knowledge of certain vocabulary words — such as “corroborate.”

… the written exam is a critical indicator of whether an officer can fill out police reports, gather testimony from witnesses and comprehend the laws he or she has to enforce.

Obama claims that these 10 written questions from an employment test are “racist”

The Obama administration has accused the New York City Fire Department of “racial discrimination” because it required potential firefighters to take a written test.

Obama wants to force the New York City Fire Department to hire black and Hispanic applicants who failed this so-called “racist” written test.

Here are ten real examples of these so-called  “racist” questions from the New York City Fire Department test:

1. While operating at the scene of a car fire on a street, a firefighter was told to inform the officer of any dangerous conditions at the scene. Which one of the following conditions would be considered most dangerous to the firefighter operating at the scene of the car fire?

A) The car is leaking gasoline.

B) The car has four flat tires.

C) Vehicle traffic has come to a complete stop at the scene.

D) The car’s windshield is broken.
