On International Women’s Day, Times Higher Education (THE), in partnership with the UNESCO IESALC, will hold a webinar to launch a new White Paper presenting a global analysis of exclusive data across 18 indicators and five detailed case studies that will support higher education institution’s efforts to tackle inequality and discrimination.
At the event, five experts from five regions of the world will share how their universities are beacons of excellence in driving progress towards gender equality. This webinar will reveal which regions are making the most significant progress and the possible factors and strategies behind their success. Join THE, UNESCO IESALC and five inspirational academic leaders and gain access to the new research designed to guide strategic making towards SDG5.
