Resources on gender awareness and early academic careers
On 24-25 November 2016, a conference entitled “Early academic careers in times of uncertainty: Challenges for gender equality policies and practices” was held at the University of Lausanne (UNIL). Organised by the EU research project GARCIA (Gendering the academy and research: Combating career instability and asymmetries), the LIVES Equality Programme and the UNIL Equality Office (BEC), with the support of the Gender Studies Platform (PlaGe) and the Social Science Institute (ISS), this event gathered gender studies specialists and equal opportunity experts from different countries.
This event was the Swiss national conference of GARCIA project, directed by Prof. Nicky Le Feuvre. Dedicated to fighting against gender stereotypes and promoting an egalitarian gender culture in European universities, the GARCIA project ended in January 2017. Working papers and other publications from the GARCIA project can be accessed here.
Here is a list of resources and a selection of the presentations from this very interesting event.
