IN TOUCH : Top of the glass?

A nation-wide leadership programme for senior academic women which kicked off last month is aimed at improving the number and status of women in the top echelons of New Zealand universities.

Women currently represent just 16.9 percent of professors and associate professors in New Zealand and this initiative is long overdue, says EEO Commisioner Judy McGregor. The week-long programme, established with the help of the Human Rights Commission, attracted 20 participants from eight universities. It is scheduled to run twice year.
