In this conference, the complexities that leaders navigate in change processes will be explored, and the influence of international crises such as climate change and pandemics in mediating the structural changes for achieving gender equality in academia will be shared through keynotes, panel discussions, and interactive workshops. EWORA cordially invites women in leadership positions at universities and research organisations, gender experts, and members of higher education networks to join this conference.

The 7th EWORA Conference will question the extent to which the complexity in change processes impacts leadership and explores how these complexities interact with advancing gender equality in academia. The forces of change require prompt decisions and actions in the highly competitive Higher Education and Research area.  Conflicting demands and the necessity for rapid responses can create challenging situations for decision-makers, where they may be required to choose between conflicting priorities.  On the other hand, as the main objective of EWORA is to advance gender equality in leadership, this conference will question how gender equality can be incorporated in decision-making processes especially during the times of dynamic global change.

This conference will empower established leaders and inspire young leaders, who will learn the strategies that senior women leaders apply while dealing with complexities such as the pandemic or climate change that has been affecting educational systems worldwide.
