The Faculty of Health conducted a Career Development Program for tenured academic staff. The objective of the career development program is that the participants develop managerial competences on a high professional level which are targeted for the academic world, so that they have a better starting point for performing managerial tasks in the future. In the selection of participants for the program, equal gender representation was an important factor.

"One of the things I always recommend universities is to up their game in terms of dual career policies,” says gender equality expert Claartje Vinkenburg in this episode of the #DiversityAU podcast.

The project, which was carried out in 2018, examines the role which gender plays in the networks that young researchers are a part of and how it affects their careers. The project was carried out by a group of researchers from The Danish Centre for Studies in Research and Research Policy.
