Women in Academia - Conference on Gender Equality

This conference targets barriers and good practice on female researchers' access to research environments. The event takes place at the Aarhus University on 18 and 19 May 2009.

18 May 2009 - 19 May 2009

There is a pronounced imbalance in the research environments. In general, there are very few female researchers. The research environements are unable to attract, develop and retain female researchers. This means that the pool of talent is not optimally utilised and that research misses out on talented scientist.

Focus will be on the barriers, international experience and best practice from a number of research environments.

Topics at the conference are:
- Life and work balance
- Networking
- Coaching and mentoring
- Recruitment and retainment
- Gender budgetting
- Excellence

The conference targets decision-makers, heads of units, researchers and HR staff in research environments.

This conference is organized by 'frAU' - Female Researchers at Aarhus University, in collaboration with MEP Britta Thomsen (PSE).Further information and registration at
