Ireland reviewed gender equality in higher education
20 December 2022Back to news
The review was carried out by a 6-person expert group of national and international members with expertise and experience in the area of gender equality, including GENDERACTIONplus coordinator Marcela Linková.
Through the consultation process with key stakeholders, and the feedback from an online consultation and written submissions, the expert group has identified a number of overarching thematic areas in relation to the advancement of gender equality for all staff in Irish higher education, both academic and professional, management and support staff.
Since the first HEA National Review of Gender Equality in Irish Higher Education Institutions in 2016, two issues have emerged as key to the advancement of gender equality in higher education: the need to take an intersectional approach when addressing gender inequality; and the impact of precarious employment on career development.
The review makes also a number of recommendations accompanied by a set of indicators. The HEA will monitor progress against these indicators on an annual basis.
