Women and Leadership
This two-day round-table aims to bring an international group of leading female scholars to Oslo to discuss their current positions and inform younger scholars about the choices, rewards, and challenges such leadership posts entail.
This international event is an opportunity for younger scholars to learn first hand what leadership means within different academic contexts and what it requires for female scholars in particular. This round table is open to academics (both male and female) at all levels, who are interested in learning more about the specific demands women have in various leadership positions across a wide range of universities and hierarchical contexts (spanning from departmental, faculty and university level administration). This event will provide participants the chance to exchange information about their own academic trajectories, positions, and experiences while simultaneously gaining insight into other institutional traditions and paradigms. In addition, this event will foster mentoring opportunities to younger scholars committed to an academic career and possible prospects for a future leadership role within academia.
