The EQUAL4EUROPE consortium meeting was held at IEDC-Bled School of Management in Bled, in Slovenia on 27-28 June. The meeting concentrated on the partners’ progress in implementing the Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) and the structural changes the partners pursuit at their institutions.

The first day, Prof. Susan Madsen, one of the top global thought leaders on the topic of women and leadership, delivered 3 thematic sessions and walked us through the steps for planning for institutional, structural and cultural changes:

  • Gender Equality Plans: Opportunities to Propel the Work Forward
  • Changing Organisational Cultures: Sexism, Stakeholders, and Systems
  • Seeking Deeper Impact: Beyond the Checklist

The second day, Prof. Mark Smith, Director at University of Stellenbosch Business School and Prof. Oľga Pietruchová, expert in the field of Gender Equality, shared with the partners their analysis and ideas on how:

  • The GEPs can help promote more equal business schools
  • The impact that COVID had on the faculties
  • Barriers and long terms solutions to fight inequality
