Women Rectors in Turkey - Task Force

EWORA organized 2 meetings with current/former Female Turkish Rectors in colloboration with Turkish Council of Higher Education. Prof. Sezer Komsuoğlu, Advisor to the President of the Turkish Council of Higher Education and Prof. Gulsun Saglamer, President of EWORA gave presentations in these meetings. 

The 1st meeting held on April 21, 2017 in Istanbul.
The Rectors exchanged their experiences and shared their ideas on how to increase the number of female Rectors in Turkey. Although Turkey has a high academic representation of women, the percentage of women at senior management levels of academia is very low. 

The 2nd meeting was held on 12 October, 2017 in Istanbul. 
A long discussion took place after the presentations. Turkish Female Rectors focused on the strategies for increasing the number of female leaders in Turkish academia.

EWORA will continue to organize these meetings twice a year.
