If AAA, CAAA, EAA, AFAANZ, et al replicates AEA survey on discrimination what would results be???

Today as I prepared to teach a governance class on executive compensation, I came across a Canadian think tank study on the Double Glass Ceiling. https://www.policyalternatives.ca/publications/reports/double-pane-glass-ceiling The double glass refers to the fight women have in breaking into top executive and board ranks and then in executive ranks getting equal pay for equal work!

At the same time I read in the Globe & Mail, the closest thing Canada has to the NY Times or Times of London, about the results of the American Economic Association survey https://www.aeaweb.org/news/press-release-climate-survey-results-march-2019 on discrimination nation among current and former AEA members – predominately academic economists. The response rate was huge 25 % of current members responded. What they reported was a hugely misogynistic culture that devalued contributions of women and racial minority economists.

As I think about the difficulty I run into convincing many tenured Associate Professors that are female to go up for promotion to full prof, I wonder if the set of experiences they encountered might be similar to those in the AEA. Maybe the various accounting associations should find out!
