Section 4. How to Overcome the Barriers

 

Many higher education and research organisations have adopted different strategies to overcome barriers to career progression for women and men. Since every institution is different, interventions will vary from organisation to organisation. In each organisation there may be a different set of drivers to support their work in promoting gender responsive leadership and in reducing gender stereotyping, be they business or social benefits or legal requirements. The concepts, resources and methodologies proposed by this e-learning package are presented therefore not as a roadmap, but to facilitate discussion and exploration within organisations.

This section presents case studies from GENOVATE institutions to illustrate strategies and interventions to promote gender/diversity competent leadership.
