THE, in partnership with UNESCO IESALC (the International Institute for Higher Education in Latin America and the Caribbean) invite you to join five experts from five regions of the world to share how their universities are beacons of excellence in driving progress towards gender equality.
On International Women’s Day, THE and UNESCO-IESALC will publish a new White Paper presenting a global analysis of exclusive data across 18 indicators, and five detailed case-studies that will help you support your own institution’s efforts to tackle gender inequality and discrimination.
We will reveal regional examples which are making outstanding progress, and the possible factors and strategies behind their success.
Gain access to the new research that is designed to guide strategic decision making towards promoting SDG5.
We will explore:
• Which regions are working towards greater equality when it comes to the average shares of female students across different subject areas
• How universities are becoming more focused on improving women’s access to higher education than improving their outcomes and success rates
• In which areas are women underrepresented within the university staff and academics.
• What is a new emerging frontier in the fight for gender equality?
