This conference aims at gathering about 100 representatives from higher education and research institutions worldwide, as well as from donor organisations, to identify barriers to gender equity in higher education management and to discuss good (and bad) practices from across the globe. It is organised in the frame of the “Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies (DIES)” programme, which is jointly conducted by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Rectors´ Conference (HRK). Leaders of higher education institutions play a crucial role in the development of their institutions and countries. By far more men than women are represented in leading positions. Gender equity in higher education management positions seems to be hard to achieve, due to a bundle of difficulties women face. Not only will the conference provide a platform for discussing practices, it will also contribute to developing adapted and useful measures for the DIES programme.
