Since 2016, the Higher Education Authority produces the Higher Education Institutional Staff Profiles by Gender report. These reports collate gender disaggregated data from Irish Higher Education Institutions that are in receipt of annual core-grant funding from the HEA. These reports provide a valuable baseline from which progress can be measured and analysing them showcases changes made in relation to the gender balance of staff within Higher Education Institutes in Ireland.
The reports include:
- The gender of each president/or equivalent
- The gender balance on governing authority/body, academic council and executive management
- The gender balance of staff by post, discipline and grade
- The sector summaries indicate the number of institutions that have a minimum 40% of each gender on key decision-making bodies.
