http://gender-summit.com/ Presentation by Prof. Simone Buitendijk, Vice Rector of the University of Leiden and Member of the LERU Steering Group for the Advice Paper on Gender in Academia at the second Gender Summit in Europe 2012. Prof. Buitendijk presented the recommendations and commitment to take action on gender equality issues agreed on by member institutions of the League of European Research Universities. Not enough women opt for a career in research and too many drop out as they advance in an academic career. The League of European Research Universities (LERU) universities view this as a loss of talent in the workplace, a loss of diversity in society and a loss for universities’ pursuit of excellent research and new knowledge creation. This new report offers evidence and guidance on how to achieve the structural change needed .
