The main objective of the project “Making Gender Balance from Below” (BALANCE) is to help create gender balance in senior positions (full professors) at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
The project has the following subgoals:
1. Assess the current situation in all departments.
2. Involve a selection of departments in a series of workshops that will process local problem understanding about gender imbalance and develop local initiatives to improve the situation.
3. Facilitate the spread of knowledge about the results within NTNU and other academic institutions.
4. Clarify the relationship between quality of professional management, the robust, inclusive academic community, professional quality and gender balance.
