The OGS has approved the Gender equality plan (GEP): a programmatic document to reduce gender asymmetries within the institution. The GEP will be presented today, 11 February at 5 pm, during the public meeting "Donne e Scienza: quando le parole fanno la differenza" organized on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
The Plan is developed according to five priority areas to promote balance between private and working life, gender balance in top positions and in decision-making bodies, gender equality in recruitment and career progression, integration of the gender dimension in research and to combat gender-based violence.
The Plan is a set of integrated actions and is part of the strategy to strengthen gender equity in European organizations, which has now become a requirement for access to funding from the Horizon Europe program and the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) .
The meeting, which will be streamed live on the OGS Youtube channel, will be attended by Paola Del Negro, general manager of OGS and Rosy Russo, founder of Parole O_Stili. Introduced by Nicola Casagli, president of OGS.
