Gender in HE

Gender in Higher Education Conference 2022

A one-day conference bringing together higher education experts in gender equality to address the gender imbalance in higher education.

Over the past decade significant advances have been made in addressing the gender imbalance present in the higher education sector, but despite comprising the majority of staff working in UK higher education, women remain underrepresented at the most senior levels and the challenge to increase the pace of change remains.

This one-day conference will bring together higher education experts in gender equality to consider how further progression can be made to address the continuing presence of those factors contributing to the inequality of women. Factors such as the underrepresentation of women in strategic leadership or governance roles, the gender pay gap, fewer women accepted for the REF, sexual harassment, parental responsibility, maternity leave and taboo issues such as the menopause.
