Young academies from the Nordic and Baltic countries have published a joint statement on gender equality in academia. The statement grew out of the first Nordic-Baltic meeting held in Stockholm, Sweden, in March 2019. The statement’s purpose is to identify initiatives and strategies that may improve gender equality in academia. The young academies take gender equality to be not only a matter of fairness, but also a powerful tool for greater diversity, leading to higher quality and excellence in science. The statement is aimed at universities, research councils and decision-makers in the Nordic and Baltic countries.

Please see here for a short video comment on the statement by former Young Academy of Sweden Chair Maria Tenje.
