A global network of researchers

Supporting Women Researchers

Over the last year, AuthorAID has focused on supporting women in research to address gender inequalities in academia. These inequalities range from the delicate balancing of career goals with traditional gender roles at home, to the more fundamental challenges of managing safety on campus and breaking through the glass ceiling of promotion.

Gender Mainstreaming in Higher Education Toolkit

AuthorAID recently launched the Gender Mainstreaming in Higher Education toolkit, an easy-to-use resource for institutions interested in tackling gender inequality in research.

View the toolkit and read more about how the toolkit arose out of a partnership last year with the University of Dodoma (UDOM).

Gender Grants

Gender Grants support researchers in attending a conference on the topic of gender or hosting a gender workshop in their country.

AuthorAID has awarded 9 gender travel grants to researchers from 8 different countries and 10 gender workshop grants to experienced researchers and facilitators from 7 different countries.

Some of the recent grants AuthorAID has supported include:
