The European Women Rectors Association (EWORA) shared their concerns on gender equality last week at the 6th Women Rectors Conference at Malmö University, Sweden. Their concerns resulted in a declaration for the political consensus about gender equality as a priority under threat.
In the declaration, the group urges "member states and the EC to reinforce actions for gender equality, which go beyond ‘equality of opportunity’. Gender equality is a comprehensive issue that must continue to be tackled at a structural level by research funding and performing organizations”.
The declaration was prepared during the annual Women Rectors Conference, which focused on “Responding to Evolving Challenges: Best Practices for Women Leadership in Academia”.
