Gender Equality

Our vision is to achieve an effective gender equality within our organization, by reversing the existing structural factors that trigger inequalities and building up a working environment free of gender bias, sexist attitudes, and sexual harassment. 

Furthermore, we expect to contribute actively to the construction of a more egalitarian scientific and technological environment that incorporates the perspective of all genders, thus contributing to the development of a society were all people will have equal opportunities. 

Background

In May 2018 a Gender Equality Committee was launched with the mission of securing a gender-bias free working environment at nanoGUNE (see GEC Founding Document). A few months later, an internal diagnosis was carried out in the framework of the RI-PEERS EU project – Pilot experiences for improving gender equality in research organisations, in which nanoGUNE participates. This diagnosis served as a basis for the development of a Gender-Equality Plan to be implemented in the period 2019-2022. 

The implementation of nanoGUNE's Gender Equality Plan is led by the Outreach Manager and the Director, in close collaboration with the Gender Equality Committee.
