A specific suggestion to help recruit/retain women faculty at Hopkins

A recent article by a former Obama administration official has stirred up debate over the obstacles women face in balancing work/life. This reminded me of this report written by a committee here at Hopkins to help resolve the current gender-based career obstacles for women faculty. The report is great, but in practice we have a long way to go. For example, my department has not hired a woman at the tenure track level in 15 years.
