Beyond the Glass Ceiling – Istanbul Recommendations

The fourth European Women Rectors Conference was held in Istanbul between the 15-17 May, 2014.
The theme of the conference was the role of leadership in structural changes for achieving gender equality in academia. As it is widely accepted that leadership plays a crucial role in all change processes in Higher Education and Research we have decided to focus on “Role of Leadership in Structural Changes” for the forthcoming conference. 
During the plenary sessions invaluable contributions were made by the keynote speakers and along the parallel sessions distinguished women leaders coming from 30 different countries shared their experiences and discussed the questions of: What are the structural changes that we need in higher education and research? How are we going to initiate change? How are we going to monitor these processes?
