Abstract: In the current discourse on inclusion and equity agenda, gender equality issue remains critical and still captures the centre stage around the globe. Despite some positive results due to the persistent resistance to correct the historical exclusion of women in playing important roles in the position of power, the gap remains wide in the area of higher education leadership as women are not on the same footing as men. This article presents a statistical overview of gender disparity in leadership positions in higher education across the world. It highlights the significance of women representation in leadership positions in institutions of higher education and advocates strategies for achieving this goal using exemplary practices from selected literature.
