Empowering Women in Higher Education

The question of gender inequality is still a fundamental concern in higher education. Women participation in universities has grown significantly in recent years. Nevertheless women’s experience and engagement in academic and administrative life at the universities still will have to improve to meet women’s expectations. This unique bespoke programme intends to focus on women’s role in academic and/or administrative life in the academia with the view to empower them both as individuals and as team members within their institutions. The programme draws in expert consultants in the field who will dissect various aspects of gender equality, women representations and inclusion with reference to the best practice in the UK higher education as a leading example.

Programme topics include but not limited to the following:

  • The developing role of women in universities
  • The state and higher education -widening participation, inclusion and diversity
