Women decry low number of female leaders in higher learning institutions

There are fewer women occupying leadership positions in Rwanda’s higher learning institutions, despite efforts to promote education for women and to place them in decision making positions. This was disclosed during a meeting organised by the Rwanda Association of University Women (RAUW). The meeting was aimed at identifying barriers to female leadership in higher education and to develop strategies for promoting greater access for women to higher education decision making positions, including creation of global network on this issue.
