RESILIENT WOMEN AND SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION IN HE
This farewell symposium with 5 (former) deans as speakers touches content wise on 3 topics which are very close to my heart: sustainable innovation, resilience, and women in higher education. I am particularly pleased with the opening key note by Carla Millar who will share here experiences and views on female deans in (Dutch) higher education, and will say farewell to UT’s Ambassadors Network at the same occasion. Linked to that, but also in a broader sense, Tanya Bondarouk and Jennifer Herek as deans and women at our technical university speak about the importance of recogintion and rewards in (Dutch) Higher Education. Paquita Perez, colleague at Open Universiteit, and myself will connect and bridge these insights with resilience and skills for sustainable innovation, particularly in HE and the academic world, focusing also on the role of women, female academic entrepreneurs and girls in STEM. We hope to inspire all attendees (online or on-campus) with these connected short speeches!
