Erasmus Women in Academia
Women like you have entered academia in significant numbers for forty years. However, although women do reach senior leadership positions, progress is slow and they have yet not reached parity with men.
The EWA progamme has been designed by the Erasmus Center for Women and Organisations in close cooperation with the Diversion & Inclusion Office of Erasmus University, to help you become more effective in developing your career within the academic environment. The programme will be primarily delivered by academics who have an understanding of both the nature of gender bias and the unique characteristics of the world of academia. Key themes of the modules are leadership, effective communication, the power of networks, negotiating and navigating the political playing field.
