Anti-White Racism And Gender Discrimination At Carnegie Mellon University? August 29, 2006Posted by C.A.R.D in american, Anti-White, Card, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, gender discrimination, Racism, Racist, School, White.
A former research scientist at Carnegie Mellon University filed a federal lawsuit against the school yesterday claiming both gender and race discrimination.
Joann Paul, who was hired in the electrical and computer engineering department in 1997, said she was denied promotion at the university because she is an American-born white woman.
The lawsuit names Carnegie Mellon, as well as Pradeep K. Khosla, dean of engineering, and Vijayakumar Bhagavatula, the acting department head.
Ms. Paul filed the Title IX lawsuit claiming that in 30 years, three white women have applied for promotion in the department, and all three were denied it.
As a research scientist, Ms. Paul was expected to meet with potential clients and sponsors to try to obtain grant money and solicit projects, the lawsuit says, but it was difficult to do because others in the department tried to exclude her from meetings and other gatherings.
Ms. Paul notes that despite that exclusion, she was able to secure $3 million in grants.
In fall 2004, Ms. Paul sought promotion to the position of assistant research professor. The vote that was taken resulted in an even split, the lawsuit says.
Ms. Paul says she was then discouraged from seeking promotion again by Mr. Bhagavatula.
