IAU-EWORA: Tackling the Leaky Pipeline in Academic Leadership
14:00 CET, 5 March 2024

 

In honor of International Women’s Day 2024, the IAU and EWORA invite interested participants and experts in higher education to discuss the challenges that remain for gender equality in academic institutions, including invisible barriers and the notorious ’glass ceiling’ that prevents women from progressing to senior positions. University leaders have the responsibility to put in place policies that actively encourage and support staff in their career paths and professional development. Speakers will include university leaders and experts in the field from IAU and EWORA Member universities, who will present examples of good practice and institutional and organisational perspectives.
