    Abstract

    Academics in Higher Education are often expected to both teach and research; this is a particular challenge for women both structurally and individually. Initiatives to address structural issues include AdvanceHE. Here we focus on individual issues and report on the Programme for Women Achieving Excellence in Research, a theory-based intervention. Barriers to success were assessed and course content tailored accordingly. Evaluation demonstrated barriers reduced and confidence increased. Although barriers are both individual and contextual, our rigorous approach allows international application through intervention modification without loss of fidelity. This offers a new approach for academic developers to enable female researchers.
