Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd April 2014
hosted jointly by:
At a time when women in higher education outnumber men, the number of women in leadership positions remains low. Although women hold almost half (47.3%) of
non-professorial academic posts, just 20.5% of professors are women and only
14% of the UK’s vice-chancellors are women.
Open to academic and professional services staff, and those interested in women’s progression and equality, the conference will serve as an opportunity to:
explore the latest policy, information and research relating to women’s participation,
discuss strategic, practical and sustainable ways of supporting and developing women working in higher education,
consider the challenges and opportunities faced by women in higher education,
consider how we might change culture in Higher Education.
