Vrouwennetwerk Universiteit Utrecht


Pandora is the free UU magazine about (gender, diversity and inclusion that was made from 1986 till 2021  by the Utrecht University Women’s Network team,  together with a very diverse and  wide range of volunteers from within the UU population.

Through the years it developed into a stage for gender matters, diversity and inclusion within Utrecht University,  making a wide range of diversity perspectives visible.

Since women are still not equally represented in the academic world,  Pandora always emphasized the importance of gender diversity  within the academic and administrative context and  the importance of awareness concerning stereotyping and  also visibility of diverse talent. It did so by publishing interviews with inspiring professors, columns and articles written by scientists and board members, and other articles regarding  diversity and inclusion and relevant background information.

Pandora’s articles are written in Dutch  and sometimes in English and except for the editorial team  all contributions have been made by voluntary authors.

Pandora was made for everyone who is either professionally or privately occupied with or interested in gender matters, diversity and inclusion.

The magazine won’t be published anymore . The most recent Pandora has been (digitally) sent out on 1o February 2021. Earlier editions (in PDF format available from 2004) can be found in our archive.
