Women and Leadership 2019
This international round-table brings together top women leaders. The women at this year’s event come from higher education, the corporate world and the political sphere.
Background: Despite gains in education and the workplace over the past 50 years, men continue to outnumber women in leadership positions in nearly all professions making women underrepresented. Research shows that structural complexities, socio-cultural norms, stereotypes, discrimination, sexism and gendered bias are among the key obstacles to women’s advancement and contribute to the so-called “gender leadership gap”.
The event is funded by the Faculty of Humanities, University of Oslo.
