Kvotering og positive særtiltak: – når er det lov og når er det lurt?

Dato: 1. juni
Sted: Oslo, Norge
Arrangør: Likestillings- og diskrimineringsombudet

Omtale: Likestillings- og diskrimineringsombudet inviterer til frokostmøte om å fremme likestilling gjennom særtiltak, mandag 1. juni 2015.

Her får du kunnskap om de rettslige rammene for positive særtiltak, slik at du kan ta disse i bruk uten å bryte diskrimineringslovgivningen. Positiv særbehandling er tiltak som skal øke reell likestilling i arbeidsliv, utdanning og på alle samfunnsområder. Det blir en gjennomgang av hva som er tillatt positiv særbehandling, og vi får også høre tre virksomheters erfaringer med positive tiltak i arbeidslivet.

Våre lokaler er godt tilrettelagt. Gi beskjed hvis du har behov for tegnspråktolk, hvis det er hensyn vi bør ta ved matservering og/eller om det er andre forhold vi bør vite om.

Gendering Science: Women and Men Producing Knowledge

Dato: 4.-6. juni
Sted: Praha, Tsjekkia
Arrangør: National Contact Centre for Women and Science at the Institute of Sociology of the Academy of Sciences

Omtale: During the last two centuries, the access of women to higher education has become much easier in most developed countries. At the same time the significant transformations in science and technology have also affected the participation of women in the scientific enterprise as knowledge producers, science managers, and educators. Especially in the last three decades, given the changes in our perception of the role of science and technology in society, scholars have explored different sites of knowledge production and have highlighted the changing roles of both men and women in the sciences.

The task of the conference is to map the historical path of women from equal opportunities in education to the position of knowledge producers, science managers and educators in the light of the gendered transformations of the sciences in the 20th and 21st centuries.

24th EAN Annual Conference: Advocating for access, equity, inclusion and diversity in higher education: Politics, Policies, Power and Persuasion

Dato: 7.-9. juni
Sted: Oslo, Norge
Arrangør: European Access Network in collaboration with the National Union of Students in Norway

Omtale: All of us seeking to change the ideas, policies, practices,  systems and other factors that support and perpetuate education inequalities  are ‘advocates for change’ – whether we are students, academics, administrators, policy makers, teachers, support workers, or have some other role within or outside higher education.

Being an advocate for change in higher education, particularly an ‘equity champion’, is a challenging, and at times thankless role. It is also a very important role. Without equity champions – both individuals and organisations – it is doubtful that many of the reforms that have opened up higher education opportunities for a more diverse student group over recent decades would have been achieved.

Glasstaket: Metaforen og mekanismene

Dato: 15.-16. juni
Sted: Trondheim, Norge
Arrangør: ISFs Kjernemiljø for likestillingsforskning, CORE

Omtale: I samarbeid med forskere ved NTNU arrangerer ISFs Kjernemiljø for likestillingsforskning åpne forelesninger, debatt og tverrfaglig forskerworkshop om metaforen "glasstak" og mekanismene den brukes til å beskrive.

Påmeldingen til konferansens første dag (åpne forelesninger og debatt) åpner senere, mens fristen for innsendelse av abstracts til forskerworkshopen er 1. februar. Workshopen tar sikte på å romme ulike fagdisipliner, det være seg økonomi, sosiologi og andre.

«Glasstak» er en metafor for usynlige barrierer mot avansement i organisasjoner og næringsliv. Begrepet brukes oftest om organisasjonsinterne forhold som hindrer kvinner i å nå toppen. Metaforen er mye anvendt, men også omdiskutert. I både norsk og internasjonal forskningslitteratur knytter det seg uenighet til hvorvidt glasstaket eksisterer, og hvorvidt det bidrar til å forklare hvorfor det er langt flere menn enn kvinner i samfunnets eliteposisjoner.

Juli

Driving Forward Gender Equality in Europe: Combating Discrimination in the Workplace and Beyond   

Dato: 2. juli
Sted: Brussel, Belgia
Arrangør: Public Policy Exchange

Omtale: Gender Equality, one of the founding values of the EU, is not only essential from a human rights perspective, but it also makes sense from an economic viewpoint. It means equal access to resources, as well as empowerment and visibility of both women and men in all spheres of public and private life. Although progress is visible, gender gaps still persist in many areas. At the current rate of change, it is estimated that it would take more than 70 years to make equal pay a reality and almost 40 years to ensure that housework is equally shared between women and men.

To accelerate progress, active policy initiatives are needed to reduce gender-based discrimination in the workplace and beyond. In November 2013, the first Council of Europe Strategy on Gender Equality 2014-2017 was unanimously adopted, with the aim of providing policy guidance and promoting a holistic and integrated approach. At EU level, the Post 2015 Framework is underway – a strategy facing both the difficulties of recession and the need to mainstream a gender perspective in all policies and programme.

Inequality in the 21st Century

Dato: 2.-4. juli
Sted: London, England
Arrangør: Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE)

Omtale: SASE is an international, inter-disciplinary academic organization. The academic disciplines represented in SASE include economics, sociology, political science, organization studies, management, psychology, law and history.

The first decade of the 21st century saw increased controversy over the degree of inequality in contemporary societies. This controversy grew more heated yet due to the fact that even after the financial crisis, the wealth and income of the rich continued to grow disproportionately in spite of their role in the crash.

For anybody interested in socio-economics, therefore, inequality is a central phenomenon where institutions and markets come together, and where the key political questions of an era are enacted.

  • How and why has the degree and form of inequality within and between societies changed over the last 50 years?
  • How has the gradual dominance of neo-liberal policy-making affected the distribution of inequality between labor and capital and between different social groups?How has the politics of inequality changed in this period? What have been the legitimating ideologies and discourses for different patterns of inequality and how have perceptions about the nature, extent, causes, and consequences of inequality shifted?
  • How have changes in state policies impacted on inequality?
  • What forms of resistance and opposition to inequalities (such as trade unions, feminist movements, and social movements) have been effective and in what ways?
