In the lack of comprehensive empirical research that combines both personal and systemic perspectives of women academics’ career advancement, this paper provides some suggestions on the factors that affect career progression of women academics in Australia. Data were collected from women academics in Australia using a Web questionnaire designed to cover all four major workplace dimensions: individual, human capital, interpersonal, and organizational. Overall, human capital is found to be the reason for Australian women academics’ advancement to the Professorial classifications. The contribution of the interpersonal and organizational dimensions to that explanation is modest, and no explanation is obtained from the individual dimension.
