Understanding Challenges and Solutions

Step 2: Understanding Challenges and Solutions (2018)

To prioritize goals within the GenEQ initiative, the University will research its own challenges, such as :

  • distribution of women and other under-represented gender groups in academic and professional areas and in leadership positions
  • gender patterns in grant submissions, funding and nominations for research awards
  • policies and practices for hiring, professional development, performance review and wage setting
  • balance of scholarships across genders, particularly in areas with gender imbalances

The research will also:

  • assess the culture of inclusion on our campuses
  • explore international best practices for achieving gender equity
  • review leadership programs at U of G and beyond
