Female and male business school graduates (N = 355) assessed the importance of 20 university-based initiatives designed to address the chilly climate for women students and to incorporate gender and diversity issues into the business school curriculum. Women and men rated the importance of two initiatives as equally important; women saw all other initiatives as significantly more important than men. Changes in the importance of 12 initiatives between 1989 and 1994 was also assessed for a subset of 133 women respondents. Six initiatives remained equally important over time; five increased in importance over time; only one decreased in importance.
