Gender equality has come a long way since International Women’s Day was founded 111 years ago. In many ways, universities have been a positive force in this journey. But there is still far to go.

Our new data-led report marking International Women’s Day 2022, Gender Equality: How global universities are performing – part 1, draws on our wealth of data to examine whether higher education is setting a leading example for other industries. One of the key findings is that while most global universities claim to have various policies and services that support women’s advancement, a far lower share are able to provide relevant evidence – raising questions about the sector’s progress to date.

We’ve also published our annual list of the world’s top universities led by women. The data show that the share of female vice-chancellors in the World University Rankings top 200 has surpassed 20 per cent for the first time.

In other news, more than 1,500 institutions from across the world have submitted data to participate in the fourth edition of our Impact Rankings. We’ll be revealing the results next month.
