Latest report from Sequoia Capital predicts that the IT market is changing towards more staff cuts. Looks like hiring programmers is going to get cheaper & startups will have a harder time, too.
23/ In the final talk before the break Jasminka Hasić Telalović discusses gender equality and academic culture.
21/ Now Sanja Podunavac-Kuzmanović discusses gender inequality in academia based on the data collected at the University of Novi Sad.
20/ The first talk of the panel about gender inequality focuses on the obstacles in the job market & education for women in Bosnia and Herzegovina 🇧🇦
19/ During Q&A now a male academic got up & said that the data collected over several years contradicted his observations at work, claimed that there is full gender equality in higher ed & that women use maternity leave to advance their careers. I wish this were a joke, but nope.
18/ Nikoleta Đukanović now discusses affirmative action measures for underreprented groups in Montenegro.
17/ Jasmina Bešlagić: sexual harassment targets the dignity & career opportunities of the victim, institutional policies throughout Europe are still not adequate to handle this threat to students and staff.
16/ Some revolutionary changes are happening at CEU with anti-harassment policy! From Ana Belén Amils talk:
15/ Ana Belén Amil: attempts to teach the perpetrators to not harass students and coworkers are not effective, according to data. Education must focus on teaching bystanders and victims how to react.
14/ Ana Belén Amil: at CEU anything that happens during socializing (bar, dinner, etc.) after academic events (conference, seminar, group meeting) is covered by the university anti-harassment policy ➡️ make this the norm!
13/ Ana Belén Amil (Gender Equality Officer at Central European University) is now giving a keynote on innovations in anti-harassment policies at European universities.
12/ Karolina Lendák-Kabók: fixed-term academics experience significantly more abuse at work than tenured professors & also more than students, despite students being junior in academic career path. Work abuse peaks for people aged 36-45, a group with least employment security.
11/ Karolina Lendák-Kabók: the rise of abuse in academia, including mobbing, sexual harassment & gender based violence was made possible, among others, via adopting neoliberal schemes of competition for academics & students.
10/ Ana Horvat Vuković in Q&A: possibility to anonymously report abuse (including online) very important, helps prevent further harassment, good indication if cases accumulate even when students are not interrogated.
