9th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education
The three French organizing institutions – CNRS, Université Paris Diderot and Université Sorbonne Paris Cité – and the French Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, wish to inform you that the 9th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education will be taking place on 12-14 September 2016, in Paris, France, hosted by the Université Paris Diderot.
The European Conferences on Gender Equality in Higher Education have, since 1998, brought regularly together hundreds of gender equality actors from Europe and beyond. The conferences provide an international forum to discuss and exchange information and experiences and share research results on the changes and challenges related to gender in academia, gender equality promotion and interventions in higher education and research institutions.
France is hosting this event for the first time. Gender research, including research on women in academia in particular, is well developed in France and has grown considerably these past ten years. France has also put into action since 2012 an important legislative and regulatory machinery aimed at ensuring effective equality between women and men in all sectors of society and in higher education and research particularly. Its institutions, as well as its associations and companies, are involved in numerous actions, and partners in various European networks. Notably, France is project coordinator for the GENDER-NET ERA-NET, which will be holding its final conference as part of this 9th Conference.
Deadline for submission has been set to February 29th, 2016.
