'How has Covid-19 impacted on gender equality in HE? ' is the focus of a new podcast published today by Advance HE.
Throughout February 2021, Advance HE has focused on the impact of Covid-19 on gender equality in higher education (HE). There is mounting evidence that the impact of Covid-19 is likely to have a negative impact on gender equality, with women more likely to take on the majority of caring responsibilities and more likely to lose their jobs. In the UK, it has been found that these issues have been compounded for Black, Asian and minority ethnic women.
In this podcast, Dr Sarah Liu, Lecturer in Gender and Politics, University of Edinburgh, shares her views on the intersectional impact that Covid-19 has had on our society, whether this has been mirrored by the HE sector and what issues higher education institutions should be aware of.
