ADVICE PAPER by Jadranka Gvozdanović J. and Maes K. (2018): Implicit bias in academia: A challenge to the meritocratic principle and to women’s careers – and what to do about it.

"This paper looks at the role of implicit bias as a mechanism behind the gender gap and a potential threat to academic meritocracy. It focuses on implicit gender bias, examining how it plays a role in working conditions for women at universities, in recruitment and career advancement processes, and in research funding situations."

POSITION Paper by Buitendijk S., Curry St. Maes K. (2019): Equality, diversity and inclusion at universities: the power of a systemic approach.

"This position paper examines the issue of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) at universities. It is firstly a manifesto which makes the case for why universities should and how they can engage with EDI. It also analyses the opportunities and benefits for universities to engage with EDI and it contains several research-based contributions on specific EDI challenges. Finally, the paper has a section with many examples of what LERU universities are actually doing to build equal, diverse and inclusive organisations."
