International Women's Day 2018
The themes for the International Women’s Day 2018 have been announced as #TimeisNow and #PressforProgress. EWORA embarks with a strong commitment for making “gender equality” a “common value” for all! .
EWORA, has the great pleasure to honour the Swedish Government as the leading feminist government, meaning that “gender equality is central to the Government’s priorities – in decision-making and resource allocation”. It is the first government of its kind with this type of mission internationally, and EWORA would therefore like to present The Swedish government with the first “EWORA International Women’s Day Award 2018”. Sweden, as one of the leading countries in promoting gender equality and with the highest ratio of female rectors at higher education institutions, has always been an impressive inspiration for EWORA. It is an honour for EWORA to present this award to the Swedish government in a ceremony that will be held at University of Lisbon Nova, Portugal on May 25, 2018.
Remembering with gratitute women’s long struggle for their rights, European Women Rectors Association (EWORA) would like to wish you all peace and happiness on this International Women’s Day. #TimeisNow to #PressforProgress for diversity and inclusion in higher education at all levels. Together we must press for gender parity in the decision making and leadership positions in academia.
