Silent Witness: Why are women missing from Hong Kong academic leadership?

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

The underrepresentation of women as academic leaders is a global
phenomenon. Extensive research demonstrates that women fail to move
through academic hierarchies and reach the most senior grades and
leadership positions in higher education. The Hong Kong academy is no
exception. Out of 110 positions at the level of Dean and above, figures
from 2016 show that only 8 women (7.3%) are represented in the most
senior leadership roles across the sector. Hong Kong does not currently
have a woman President/Vice-Chancellor at any of its higher education
institutions.
