In March 2019, a group of graduate students at the University of Tokyo came together to study and promote gender equality on campus. We were inspired by existing university initiatives on GE, but at the same time we were struck by the slow pace of change among both students and faculty members. We also noticed that despite the large number of GE activities, fragmentation and low coordination may be reducing their impact.
Supported by the University of Tokyo GSDM Program for Leading Graduate Schools, we are undertaking a two-year project to understand, respond to, and improve gender equality among faculty members and students at our university.
We believe that gender equality benefits both men and women, and we are convinced that as students we have the power to foster an academic environment respectful of and encouraging diversity.
This website introduces our research and outreach activities on GE at UTokyo. In addition, we provide a comprehensive and regularly-updated compendium of GE institutions and events at our university.
