Women in HE Conference 2020

United Kingdom

The Women in HE Conference 2020 will be held at the Marriott Hotel in Regents Park, London on 23 January 2020. The conference is a major event focusing on the gender equality issue in HE and aims to drive better representation, rights and work conditions for women working in the sector. The official theme for the event this year is accelerating change for gender equality, with considerable focus being given to individual aspects including diversity on boards, breaking down and understanding the gender pay gap, violence and harassment against women, work-life balance and the glass cliff. The glass cliff refers to the phenomenon of women achieving leadership roles during times of downturn or crisis, when they are most likely to fail rather than succeed.

Diskussjoni ta’ EPALE: Il-forniment ta’ tagħlim ta’ ħiliet bażiċi

Il-ħiliet bażiċi huma trasversali. Dawn mhumiex rilevanti biss għall-politika edukattiva, iżda huma rilevanti wkoll għall-politiki tal-impjiegi, tas-saħħa, soċjali u ambjentali. Il-bini ta’ miżuri ta’ politika koeżivi li jappoġġjaw lill-persuni bi ħtiġijiet bażiċi ta’ ħiliet huwa meħtieġ mhux biss biex il-Perkorsi ta’ Titjib tal-Ħiliet ikunu suċċess, iżda wkoll biex jgħinu fil-bini ta’ soċjetajiet aktar reżiljenti u inklużivi. Id-diskussjoni online se ssir f’din il-paġna fis-16/17 ta’ Settembru bejn l-10:00 u s-16:00 CET u se tkun immoderata mill-Koordinaturi Tematiċi ta’ EPALE tal-EBSN
