Making gender balance from below:
stimulating gender equality among university professors
How can we stimulate efforts to create a better gender balance in top positions at NTNU?
At the present time, the balance is skewed in favour of men, and change is slow.
Our research project started in 2015 and will run until mid-2021. Its aim is contributing to the development of more inclusive cultures at the departmental level at NTNU. The project uses an action-research approach. Twelve NTNU departments have been invited to participate in a series of three workshops, where they discuss and implement gender-inclusive initiatives at their own department. These measures will then be evaluated.
