RISE Breakfast – Press4Progress to close the Gender Pay Gap

15th March 2018 @ 09:00 - 10:30

Dear RISE-member, we like to invite you for a RISE Breakfast at Thursday March 15, 9h00-10h30 to celebrate International Women’s Day. The theme of this year is Press4Progress.

Leiden University celebrates International Women’s Day at March 8 with the Annie Romein-Verschoor Lecture by the former Minister of Education, Culture and Science Jet Bussemaker. The title of the lecture is: “De Nederlandse vrouw: bakfietsmuts of gelukkig deeltijdmens?Follow this link for more details on the lecture by Jet Bussemaker on March 8 >>

At universities women only work 1 hour less a week as compared to men. Nevertheless they receive on average a lower salary as compared to male colleagues of the same age with the same job level. Among professors this difference is a shocking 438 euro per month (see LNVH report). Although we do not know the exact numbers (yet) for Leiden University, probably a similar problem holds for women at our Faculty of Science.

During a RISE breakfast  we would like to discuss the possible underlying causes and more importantly how we can Press4Progress to close the pay gap.
Please sign up for the breakfast before March 5! 

After March 5 the agenda of the meeting van be found here.
