Trinity hosts 10th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education
Trinity was honoured to host the 10th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education from 20 to 22 August 2018. The conference provided an international forum to discuss and exchange information and experiences on the challenges related to gender in academia, gender equality promotion, and interventions in higher education and research institutions.
This was the first time the conference was held in Ireland, and it highlighted significant movements by higher education institutions, the Higher Education Authority and Department of Education in recent years to tackle the issue of gender imbalance in Irish academia.
Minister of State for Higher Education, Mary Mitchell O'Connor TD opened the conference with a powerful address on the need for urgency on this matter. Chancellor of Trinity College Dublin, Professor Mary Robinson was guest of honour and keynote speaker at the gala dinner in Trinity's historic Dining Hall on 21 August (pictured below).
