Year 5 Report

Aurora aims to support women and their institutions to fulfil their leadership potential. The five year study’s purpose has been to:

  • track and analyse the career pathways of women in higher education
  • explore perspectives on (and engagement with) leadership roles and activities
  • explore perceptions of confidence, aspirations, role and professional development, work/life balance, opportunities and challenges to development/progression
  • assess commitment of women to their role, their discipline, their institution and their own professional development.

The findings have been split into across three reports:

  • A final report for Aurorans on the longitudinal study
  • A final report for leaders and policymakers on the Aurora longitudinal study
  • A summary report on the impact of Aurora
