How INASP’s ‘Gender Mainstreaming in Higher Education’ Toolkit is helping to shift mindsets

With gender inequalities in higher education present, but not always acknowledged, INASP aims to promote equity by actively addressing the needs of both men and women across our work and addressing issues of power within the research and knowledge system. Ruth Bottomley spoke with Science Impact about INASP's Gender Mainstreaming in Higher Education Toolkit and why it is vital that men, as well as women are active participants in the fight against gender inequality. (With thanks to STEM for sharing the post with us).

INASP through the years: 1992 to today … and beyond

In my last post I wrote about the 12-metre-long timeline that is now adorning INASP’s wall to celebrate our 25th anniversary this year and I described something of the journey that this timeline shows. But, unashamedly, a timeline is more than an overview; it is full of detail about which activities happened in which year, as well as what was going on in the wider world at the same time. Indeed, even at 12 metres, we had to be surprisingly selective in what we included; a lot has happened in 25 years! You can explore our timeline online at www.inasp.info/timeline but in this blog post I’m going to share a few highlights from our history and put them into a wider context.
