Joya Misra, 2021 PEP Fellow, recently published an opinion piece with colleagues about the pressure the pandemic is placing on women and faculty of color in higher education. Misra and colleagues outline a model that can be used to address the impact of the pandemic on inclusivity in higher education. "The TREE model emphasizes thinking ahead, resource provision, evaluation, and equity. It focuses on addressing both short-term and long-term impacts on faculty members to center equity as a goal. By cultivating the ground effectively and establishing the roots of equity, colleges and universities can ensure that faculty members grow through this pandemic rather than have stunted careers."
