Dr. Sorcha MacLeod speaking at UX Copenhagen 2022

Dr. Sorcha MacLeod is an Associate Professor and Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellow in the Centre for Private Governance (CEPRI) in the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. 

She is an experienced teacher and postgraduate supervisor in international human rights law, business and human rights, private military and security companies, mercenaries and the privatisation of war. She also advises governments, industry and civil society organisations on business, human rights and security issues.Still a taboo in 2022, sexism is a topic that we need to talk about, and that needs to change. In 2021, Dr. Macleod co-authored the book “Sexism in Higher Education and Research”.  

In the Danish welfare society, which supports equal access to education, healthcare, and social services, we like to think that we have an environment that is respectful and inclusive, that gender is never a limiting factor, and that, when issues arise, people feel at ease to talk about them. Reality, however, shows a very different picture.

Although based upon experiences in Danish academia, the book most definitely applies to the (global) world of tech also. This book is an eye-opener, and can be used as a communications tool to help #BreakTheBias and create a better, healthier, and safer world.
