Nordic Sub-Forum in May 23 - 25, 2016 in Tampere, Finland


The Women Leadership Academy (China) and the University of Tampere (Finland) will co-host the Nordic Sub-Forum of the World Women University Presidents Forum on May 23 – 25, 2016 at the University of Tampere in order to discuss women’s position in China and the Nordic countries. The sub-forum, under the title “Potentiality, Ability and Authority”, invites 40 scholars from Chinese and Nordic universities to share their visions on women’s status, careers and leadership in different historical, social and cultural contexts.

The aim of the sub-forum is to examine and evaluate women’s leadership especially from the perspective of gender studies. The Women Leadership Academy has a particular interest in the social and political role of women in the Nordic countries. The interest areas include, inter alia:

-       women’s leadership in media, politics, economy and higher education in the Nordic region
-       the development of state governance and gender concepts both historically and at present
-       public policies that support women’s careers and leadership in the Nordic countries
-       practical experiences of the quota system
-       experience on breaking the “glass ceiling” and the “puzzles” that lie ahead in mid-level positions


Welcome to Tampere!
