Gender-Report NRW - Gender (in)equality at Universities in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) (only available in German language)

The Coordination Office of the Women's & Gender Research Network creates the "Gender-Report NRW" in a three-year cycle. This report contains results of the current study about gender (in)equality at universities in NRW. 

The first Gender-Report was published in 2010. The following Gender-Reports were published at the end of 2013, 2016 and 2019 and can be downloaded or ordered as a print version using our order form. You can get more information on the project's website.

Gender-Report 2022

The Gender Report 2022 comprises three partial studies: Part A measures and compares gender (in)equity at universities in NRW on the basis of university statistics. How are women and men distributed across qualification levels and status groups (vertical segregation)? What gender inequalities become visible when subject groups are considered (horizontal segregation)? Special attention is paid to the 37 universities sponsored by the State of NRW.

Part B analyses gender equality policy intervention and control measures at the universities. The evaluation refers, among other things, to the gender-equitable composition of committees, the gender equality quota, childcare provision and sexualised harassment, violence and abuse of power. 

Part C of the Gender Report will analyse the career options and professional perspectives of non-profesoral scientific staff from a gender perspective. Especially against the background of structural change of  institutions of higher education it is fruitfull to inverstigate the position of non-professoral academic researchers. The focus on the impact of gender is going to close a research gap.
