Solutions to counter gender-based marginalization of women in academic leadership: Opinion

While progress has clearly been made to promote gender equality in higher ed, the experiences of many women in leadership positions reveal that it is “still too soon to take women’s path to academic leadership for granted,” write Efthalia Chatzigianni (University of the Peloponnese) and Bryony Whitmarsh (University of Southampton). The writers share reflections from women in senior leadership positions from around the world, demonstrating that many still experience professional and personal marginalization based on their gender. Chatzigianni and Whitmarsh argue that there is a clear opportunity to create support and mentorship networks in the future. They also highlight the commitment of many women in leadership to drive institutional change and transform policy to improve fairness for the next generation.
