The gender pay gap is an issue in equal opportunities that is also relevant at institutions of higher education. Differences in the pay that women and men receive, especially female professors and male professors, make it clear that there’s a need to discuss and to act.
The Gender Conference 2020, hosted by the Ministry for Culture and Science of North-Rhein Westphalia, is aimed at leaders from institutions of higher education, equal opportunities representatives, researchers, and representatives from politics. The goal of the conference is to communicate about developments at universities and tools for equal opportunities and to develop strategies for increased equality between women and men.
The event will include lectures, a panel discussion and workshops, and will take the Gender Report 2019 on institutions of higher education in NRW as their basis.
More information and registration will be available soon.
