The LeTSGEPs (“Leading Towards Sustainable Gender Equality Plans in Research Performing Organisations”) Horizon 2020 project has the pleasure to invite You to the International Stakeholders Workshop “Improvement of women’s careers prospects and gender balance in decision-making bodies in research organisations”, to be held on 27 January, 2022, from 11:00 to 13:10 CET, on the Zoom platform.
LeTSGEPs project supports the design and implementation of Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in higher education and research institutions throughout Europe. We believe that GEPs can play one of the key roles in achieving gender equality in science and innovation as they define concrete objectives and measures on an individual, cultural and structural level, aimed to ensure lasting and sustainable effects.
As a powerful instrument of detecting factors that make gender inequality persistent within institutions, besides the Gender Equality Plan, LeTSGEPs fosters the use of Gender Budgeting (GB), since budgets reflect real policy commitments. Gender equality plans and programs will succeed if accompanied with related specific fund allocation for the policy targets, and if the programs enacted are evaluated in terms of their gender equality impact by means of gender budgets leading to what we can define as more sustainable and powerful GEPs.
The international workshop is thought to be a brainstorming event where researchers and experts will present the results of their studies on how to implement Gender Equality Plans to support women’s careers and gender balance in decision-making bodies.
This workshop is free of charge and open to all, but registration is required in this link. Please, register by January 25th. You will receive the link to the meeting via e-mail the day before the event.
