Conference Women and Leadership in Academia

Date Mo, 14.11.2016 - Mo, 14.11.2016
Time All day
Location University of Zurich, Aula RAA, Rämistrasse 59, Zurich
Program Women remain underrepresented in top academic leadership positions in Switzerland, Europe and beyond. According to the “She Figures” 2015, women are gaining ground as Heads of Institution, yet parity exists in only in two out of the almost 30 “She Figures” countries. Switzerland is not one of them.

Noting that women are also underrepresented in leading political and business positions, the University of Zurich highlights its commitment to gender equality at all levels of the University with this half-day conference that brings together researchers, rectors, and policy-makers.

The conference marks the end of the UZH Gender Equality Action Plan 2013 – 16 and also serves as an outlook on the years 2017 – 20 and the second UZH Gender Equality Action Plan. Leadership in academia remains a core theme thought both Plans.
