As part of our association's efforts to accelerate equality, diversity and inclusion, including as agreed in our Declaration, our association is proud to support the following webinars organised by the European Women Rectors Association (EWORA).
The power of science & technology to transform society, for better and for worse, has been demonstrated repeatedly throughout history. Universities of science & technology have specific roles and responsibilities related to advancing developments in science & technology, and ensuring these are for the benefit of humankind. Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) provides a human-centric framework, foundational for this endeavour, as it enables more meaningful and deeper engagement with all of society.
At the same time and for a range of reasons, including historical ones, universities of science & technology have often not been ‘best-in-class’ in DEI in general, and in the promotion of women leadership in specific. Overcoming this shortcoming is therefore important to support universities of science & technology to assume their societal roles and responsibilities, and to boost their contributions to society.
The European Women Rectors Association (EWORA) is happy to announce upcoming webinars to advance our understanding of why we have very limited number of female rectors at European universities of science & technology, which will feed into the development of proposals to increase the participation of female leaders. Registration is free and open to the public. You are invited to in the registration forms (links below) and information for how to connect to the webinar will be sent to the email address used in the registration form.
We are inviting you to participate in this webinar, to analyze cases together, define barriers and create solutions to encourage younger generations to run for the top leadership position in universities of science & technology in Europe, and beyond.
