New Report


The report, "Ready to Break the Glass Ceiling? Six Ideas for Europe to Better Support Gender-Balanced Leadership in Research," explores the current state of women's leadership in academia and provides strategic recommendations to foster the next generation of women scientists across Europe and beyond. While women’s representation in many scientific fields is improving, senior academic positions remain predominantly occupied by men.


This report is the result of a collaboration between the Elsevier Foundation, EWORA, and the Science|Business Network. It aims to inspire action towards achieving gender parity in scientific leadership across Europe. The recommendations are based on insights from a series of podcast interviews titled "Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Conversations with Women Leaders in Academia," featuring 15 prominent women rectors and presidents sharing their experiences and ideas. The report also incorporates data from Elsevier’s latest review, "Progress Toward Gender Equality in Research & Innovation — 2024," and highlights from a panel discussion at the annual Science|Business conference held in February 2024.
