Join us on March 1st, 2023 in Copenhagen for SPEAR'S FINAL CONFERENCE!

As we approach the conclusion of the H2020 SPEAR project, we want to celebrate together the efforts and achievements of our partners in fostering and promoting gender equality in research and academia through the development of Gender Equality Plans (GEP).

We invite GE practitioners, researchers, innovation leaders, and policymakers to join us for SPEAR'S final conference on March 1, 2023!

We are organising a hybrid event, with the physical session hosted in Copenhagen, Denmark, under the theme ‘The future of (gender) equality, inclusivity and democratic values in European Academia: practices, prerequisites, pushback, and prospectives’.

Increasingly, GE is understood as part of a broader perspective that must necessarily include and integrate a wider understanding of inclusivity. Furthermore, an expanded concept of equality – GE+ – is a transversal issue in democracy and sustainability. This conference aims to explore how the important agendas of GE, inclusivity, and democracy can enhance and strengthen each other, and how ongoing GE projects and initiatives impact these agendas in small and large ways.

Please note that this is a hybrid event, with only the conference opening and first session "SPEAR's key impact in the context of the future of (gender) equality, inclusivity and democratic values in European Academia" streamed live for online participants. If you sign up as an online participant, you will not be able to take part in the panels and workshops, nor take part in the interactive dialogues around sister GE-projects.

Registrations close on February 14th, 2023.

We also invite all attendees to join us on Tuesday, 28 February 2023 at 18:00 - 19:30 CET at the Thorvaldsen's Museum for a pre-conference social networking event. Get your free ticket here!
