Event Details:

Have you ever wondered:

  • How are salaries, other compensation, and related resource allocation beyond compensation set for faculty members at Stanford?
  • How is faculty compensation reviewed for gender and other equity?
  • When and how does compensation increase?
  • How should individual faculty members assess the extent to which they are being offered or paid a fair salary? 
  • Is the only real way to be paid more, or “what you’re worth,” to get outside offers?
  • Could faculty salary information at Stanford be more transparent?

This presentation and discussion will consider these and related questions, featuring a panel comprising:

  • Robert Weisberg, Special Assistant to the Provost for Faculty Recruitment and Retention, Associate Dean for Curriculum and the Edwin E. Huddleson, Jr. Professor in the Law School
  • Debra Satz, Vernon R. and Lysbeth Warren Anderson Dean of the School of H&S, and the Marta Sutton Weeks Professor of Ethics in Society
  • Brian Hoffmeister, Executive Director of Faculty Compensation, Stanford Medicine
  • Marcia Cohen, Senior Associate Dean, Finance & Operations, Stanford Medicine
  • Michele Barry, Drs. Ben & A. Jess Shenson Professor, Senior Associate Dean, Global Health, Director, Center for Innovation in Global Health, Professor of Medicine & Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute and at the Freeman Spogli Institute, moderator.

The Stanford Faculty Women's Forum (FWF), supported through the Office of Faculty Development, Diversity & Engagement, acts to enable all women faculty to thrive. Participation is open to all faculty members, regardless of gender identity. FWF provides opportunities for faculty participation from across the University to discuss shared interests, concerns, ideas, and to engage in action promoting greater faculty equity, inclusion, and success.

The Faculty Women's Forum particularly appreciates the engagement of the GSB Events Team in supporting this program.
