DIAZ-FERNANDEZ, María del Carmen; MARTINEZ-TORRES, María del Rocío  y  LOPEZ-BONILLA, Jesús Manuel. Women at University top management levels. New legal context and equity plans. Convergencia [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.75, pp.107-131. ISSN 2448-5799.

This research aims to identify the main barriers that make the access of women to top management levels in Universities difficult. These barriers promote the generally known and assumed reality of gender inequality in these governing bodies. A scientific method, Concept Mapping (Trochim, 1989) has been used to this aim. This methodology, whose use is new in this field of research, has allowed us to identify both the causes and possible solutions. Results highlight the need to undertake strategic lines in policies of equality, focusing on eliminating certain weaknesses and threats detected, in order to achieve effective gender equality. These results, in turn, can also be considered as a starting point in the design of real and effective equality governmental university gender policies in many countries.

Palabras llave : woman; gender; equities plans; universities’ government; public administration.
