Growth in female professor numbers is lowest in five years

The growth in the number of female professors in the Netherlands slowed in 2021 to its lowest point in five years, according to the Dutch Network of Women Professors (LNVH). At the end of 2021, an average of 26.7% of professors at Dutch universities were women, reports NL Times.

A year earlier, the average was 25.7%. At the time, it was predicted that half of professors would be women in 2040, but that forecast has now been adjusted to 2041.

The network presented the Female Professors Monitor 2022 on Thursday 8 December. At the top of the list is the Open University, just like in previous years. According to the LNVH, the Delft University of Technology remains the institution with relatively the fewest female professors. The proportion of women decreased in both places.
