Abstract

The dwindling number of women in senior positions in academia, often referred to as the ‘leaky pipeline’, is particularly apparent in Polish art schools. Anna Gromada, Dorka Budacz, Juta Kawalerowicz and Anna Walewska share findings from recent research shedding light into the more general mechanisms that generate the gender gap in academia and beyond. Crucial differences were identified in networking and mentor relationships between men and women. For example, male students were more likely to receive encouragement, help with securing assistantships, and invitations to attend extracurricular art activities.
