Knowledge@Wharton, April 26, 2019:
When New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden took office in late 2017, she made worldwide headlines for being the youngest female head of state and for giving birth to a daughter while executing her duties. She grabbed global attention again in March for her response to a mass shooting that killed 50 Muslim worshippers at a mosque in Christchurch. Pundits and political observers alike praised Arden for her compassion and strength following the tragedy, and her ability to effect immediate change in the nation's gun laws.
Her actions re-ignited a longstanding debate: Are women better leaders than men? The answer is often a "yes," according to Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, chief talent scientist at Manpower Group and professor of business psychology at University College London and Columbia University.
 
The New York Times, April 26, 2019:
How America's obsession with long hours has widened the gender gap.
 
Health Affairs Blog, April 26, 2019:
Female physicians comprise nearly 40 percent of full-time medical school faculty but less than one-fifth of department chairs. Although gender-based salary gaps among academic physicians and researchers are well documented, no systematic evidence exists on how the incomes of women physicians in leadership positions compare to those of males in similar positions. This lack of data is critical since female faculty are increasingly reaching high leadership ranks in medicine, and leadership of companies by female executives has been associated with improved managerial outcomes.
 
Inside Higher Ed, April 30, 2019:
Editors discuss new volume of essays on the ways higher education is changing because of issues of race, gender and sexuality -- and how they think higher ed needs to change even more.

The National Academy of Sciences on Tuesday announced the election of 100 new members and 25 foreign associates. Of those named, 40 percent are women -- a record high.
