We don’t see women as leaders – and it’s holding them back in our universities

While gender equality in the workplace has become a much-discussed topic, we still have a long way to go to achieve parity. For example, recent analysis of the Times Higher Education’s world rankings data shows that in 2016–17, 36 of the top 200 universities globally – just 18% – have a female leader. A slight increase on the previous year, when only 17% were led by women, it is nonetheless representative of the gender inequality that persists more widely in higher education across the globe.
