Research organisations have gender inequalities too
Women make up over half of graduate students in the EU, but are only 33% of all researchers, holding only 20% of senior academic positions.
The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), in cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation have developed an online tool to bring more gender equality into the research sector.
The tool will give practical guidance on how to set up and implement gender equality planning to internal structures and processes, to bring greater gender awareness and so equality into research organisations.
20th October 2016, this tool will be launched at:
‘Mainstreaming gender equality into academic and research organisations’, Brussels
Carlos Moedas,Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation will open the conference of around 170 decision makers and experts working in the field.
