The workshop has been organised by the Department of Physics and the Faculty Office. All staff members at the Faculties of Engineering and Science are welcome to attend.
The goal of the workshop is to raise the question of how we can address problems of equality and career within the academy. The workshop is recommended for employees in the beginning of their careers such as hD’s and postdocs, but also for supervisors, department heads and managers.
- 29 September, 13:00-17:00, Department of Physics, Rydbergsalen
- 30 September, 09:00-12:00, Student Union Building, Hörsalen
From the sticky floor through the glass ceiling
Why are there so few women in leading positions within academia? Why do so many talented women choose a career outside the academy (or university)? What do men do differently compared with women in order to advance their careers? Is it really only competence (knowledge) that counts? What problems do our female scientists have to face? Is there any simple description for how to change the situation?
We would like to discuss these issues with you during the workshop, where we will take part of the experiences that our invited speakers have gathered during many years of work with these questions.
The workshop will commence with:
Lena Gustafsson (Stockholm), author of the book “Bortom glastaket – 26 ledande kvinnor om karriär, drivkrafter och ledarskap” (in English “Beyond the glass ceiling – 26 leading women about career, incentives and leadership”)
After this we will take part in the work that WINGS – Women In Great Sciences, do within Lund University. WINGS (Linnea Taylor and Ulrikke Voss) will introduce their activities and the work done for PhD’s and post docs.
Day one will finish with a talk by Hannah Stanton, with the title “50-50 by 2030, not without dismantling broken glass”.
We want to illustrate the questions raised with data from our own situation, and would like to discuss these issues with you to come up with suggestions for solution, both for yourself and everyone around.
