Opening Academic Year 2016-2017

Photobooth, spectacle moustaches, wigs and graduation hats. The Dutch network of female professors (LNVH), the Dutch PhD network (PNN) and VAWO managed to draw a great deal of attention to the 'equal opportunities for men and women in academia' campaign. Minister Bussemaker of Education took the time to talk to us about this when she arrived at the VU. Of course, we hope that our recommendations will be reflected in her policy. In any case, we will continue to work for more diversity in academia after this action.
