Discrimination and Tenure
If you are an associate professor, you are not guaranteed a permanent position unless you are granted tenure. When tenure is achieved, you will have unparalleled job security. Unfortunately, this important career milestone can be hampered by discrimination.
For example, a department chairman does not want more women in his department, so he denies tenure to an experienced and qualified female assistant professor. The assistant professor has developed a teaching curriculum and publishing protocol over seven years of employment in academia, and it becomes useless overnight.
