On International Women’s Day this spring, Rector Magnificus Cisca Wijmenga announced that the UG would be creating 15 new chair positions for female professors, known as the Aletta Jacobs Chairs. Fifteen female professors will soon start their work at the UG. The UG is now well on the way to achieving its ambition of having 33% female professors by the end of 2025.
The 15 female professors have been appointed at six faculties. Three of the professors will work at the Faculty of Economics and Business, two at the Faculty of Spatial Sciences, three at the Faculty of Law, two at the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences, three at the Faculty of Arts and another three within the UMCG.
Cisca Wijmenga: ‘We have been able to fill the 15 chair positions available within a relatively short period, despite the fact that appointing someone to a professor position is a lengthy process. This also shows that there are sufficient potential female candidates. I am therefore confident that we will reach the goal that we, as the UG, have set for 2025: namely, for 33% of our professors to be female.’
