The third Women Rectors conference titled "Beyond The Glass Ceiling: Women Rectors Across Europe Achievements, Challenges & Opportunities" which was held in Istanbul on May 21-23, 2012.
The conference attracted 19 national and 60 international participants from 29 countries. The objectives of the conference are to examine the achievements, challenges, and opportunities that women rectors experience in their positions and discuss the strategies that can be used to improve their performances as women rectors. The conference aims to achieve these objectives through the analysis and comparison of different international practices and policies. We also would like to invite women vice-rectors to take part in this conference as they have great potential to be future rectors/presidents of the universities.
