|Download PDF||518.54 KB|
This Gender Equality Plan (GEP) has a primary purpose of ensuring the Economic and Social Research Institute promotes gender equality, inclusion and diversity both internally in its work environment and externally in its outputs and engagement with the public. Through developing this GEP, the Institute is committing to examining and, where applicable, addressing processes, cultures, and structures that produce and sustain gender imbalances and inequalities. This Plan also seeks to ensure that the Institute is a safe and supportive environment for all staff.
The structure of the GEP aligns with the mandatory and recommended requirements set out in the Horizon Europe Framework Programme for Research and Innovation 2021-2027.
The GEP has been developed by a Self-Assessment Team comprising members from across the Institute’s Divisions. It will feed into a more wide-ranging and in-depth plan which is being developed as part of the Institute’s Athena SWAN application planned for submission in mid-2023.
The GEP was formally approved by the Institute’s Management Committee on Tuesday 15th November 2022.
