The Corona Crisis and Gender Equality
The Corona pandemic, with its already visible effects on gender equality, has occupied a large space in the work of bukof (Federal Conference of Gender Equality Representatives at Institutions of Higher Education) and all people working in equal opportunities in academia.
Bukof’s annual conference will thus take up this topic and address the effect of the crisis on gender equality and on the power relations connected to it. Discrimination structures at institutions of higher education (and elsewhere) have been exacerbated by the pandemic. How can solidarity be used to open possibilities for gender equality? What influence do equal opportunities actors have in this connection? How can we work together to ensure that the disadvantages that women* face are lessened rather than increased? These are the kinds of questions that the organisers hope to discuss with participants.
