ATHENA SWAN CONFERENCE: A BRIGHTER FUTURE? ACCELERATING INSTITUTIONAL TRANSFORMATION FOR GENDER EQUALITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION

About this event

With the theme “A Brighter Future? Accelerating Institutional Transformation for Gender Equality in HE” this Athena SWAN conference will provide an opportunity to hear from leaders and experts on transforming HE institutions towards gender equality while also sharing experiences on challenges and opportunities ahead. Learning, participation and co-creation will be ensured through a mix of session formats- including keynotes, webinars, roundtables and workshops. The emphasis during the afternoon session will be on exploring how to move away from binary concepts of gender and to adopt an intersectional approach in the design, implementation and evaluation of gender action plans.
