While gender has been on the agenda in HE for many years, the nature and focus of the conversation is expanding. Long-standing issues such as the under-representation of women in STEM subjects and in senior leadership, sexual harassment, and the need to support pregnancy, maternity and caring responsibilities continue to require attention. And they are joined by newer areas of enquiry including considerations about gender and inclusion, intersectionality, connections and tensions between sex-based and gender-inclusive rights, and the place of gender in learning and teaching, and in models of leadership.
Advance HE’s Gender in HE Conference is an opportunity to explore this growing agenda, consider the implications for HE institutions and reflect on the practical steps they can take to navigate its complexity.
