GEinCEE open webinar: 'Towards Inclusive Gender Equality Plans'

2021-09-14

Gender equality in higher education and research policy is given increasing attention as the data confirms persisting gender inequalities in science. Also, researchers themselves demand more engagement on the level of organisations for assuring equal treatment of all employees. At the same time institutional commitment to assuring gender equality becomes a prerequisite for prestigious awards, like HR Excellence in Research, and an eligibility criterion for Horizon Europe grants. Moreover, the new European Research Area Communication underlines both the need to continue efforts to address gender gaps, and to address the intersectionality and diversity in science.

In the final event of the Community of Practice for Gender Equality in Central and Eastern Europe (GEinCEE CoP) within the ACT project (Horizon 2020, 2018-2021) on 24 September 2021, they invite to an open webinar and accompanying trainings and a workshop dedicated to the issues of unconscious bias, intersectionality and gender equality plans.

The webinar will be dedicated to the specific context of the Central and Eastern European region, where research and higher education organizations face specific challenges, such as insufficient legal incentives towards development of gender equality policies at institutional level, or unfavorable political climate for gender equality resulting in resistances towards implementation of gender equality plans. The webinar, trainings and workshop will allow to raise knowledge among experts from the region’s research performing organizations, as well as will allow to empower and inspire institutions beyond GEinCEE for engagement in gender equality change.
