  • Principal themes

    The recommendations and action items presented in this report are grouped around three themes:

    • Academies advocating and promoting the education and careers of women;
    • Academies acting, both individually and jointly, to engage women in global capacity building;
    • Academies building inclusive institutional climates and advising governments and other principal players on specific actions toward similar ends.

     The Advisory Panel advocates that all academies adopt ‘good management practice’ throughout their organizations and in all their actions, and encourages this practice as well in other scientific institutions and organizations around the world. Essential features of good management practice are commitment by the top tiers of the organization, creation of an open and transparent management structure, regular review of all policies and procedures for their gender implications, leadership training and mentoring, and routine monitoring of progress.
