WomenCount: Leaders in Higher Education 2016, benchmarks changes taking place in women’s representation in leadership roles in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the UK. The overall direction of change is positive but men still overwhelmingly dominate Chair and Vice Chancellor roles and are the vast majority of executives and academic heads. Performance across HEIs also varies greatly. The challenge is to quicken the pace at which women are advancing into senior leadership roles, sustain progress made and ensure that every HEI benefits from diverse leadership. The report, sponsored by Perrett Laver, indexes the progress being made across all 166 HEIs in the UK.
