Our Gender Equality Plan

Internationality, diversity and collaboration are among the core values on which we have been building Human Technopole. Since our first days of activity, we have been fully committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all, fostering diversity and equal opportunities for employment.

Today we are proud to introduce our Gender Equality Plan (GEP) which, through a set of actions and measures, formalises our commitment to gender equality.  The plan responds to the guidelines of the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) aimed at identifying and implementing innovative strategies to promote cultural change and equal opportunities in Universities and Research Centres.

Our Gender Equality Plan is based on HT’s context and needs and has been drafted based on an analysis carried out through a participative process among our staff with the aim of promoting equal opportunities and fairness across all genders within the HT community.

For the time period 2022-2024, the GEP has identified the following five main objectives:

  • Improve decision making processes by addressing gender and other biases in order to meet new opportunities for excellence;
  • promote career development of all genders and encourage women to pursue scientific careers;
  • support the reconciliation of career and family life and promote a healthy work life balance;
  • incorporate the gender dimension variable in research as part of a broader commitment to diversity;
  • implement measures against gender-based discrimination, including sexual harassment.

A coordinating team, covering different HT functions, has been nominated by HT Director and will be led by our Director of Administration to support the implementation of the Plan. You can find further information and the full Gender Equality Plan here.
