SAVE THE DATE: PLOTINA FINAL CONFERENCE (27th-28th of January 2020, Bologna, Italy)

The European Commission has acknowledged gender equality as a priority since the late 1990s and, to this end, the implementation of Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) across Europe has become a key strategy to realize EU gender mainstreaming policies in Academia and Research Performing Organizations (RPOs).

Consistently with this goal, the H2020 “PLOTINA” Consortium has designed and implemented self-tailored GEPs in its RPOs pursuing the following long-term objectives:

  • Preventing the waste of talent related to the drop-out of female researchers, namely in the STEM fields of study, through ad-hoc recruitment, retention and career progression, as well as work-personal life integration policies
  • Encouraging the increase of the number of women in governing bodies
  • Promoting the integration of the sex variable and the gender dimension in research to achieve high quality scientific knowledge
  • Promoting the inclusion of the sex variable and the gender dimension in teaching programmes and curricula design
  • Designing indicators and tools to measure gender equality within organizations

The international conference “ReGendering Science. For an inclusive research environment” (Bologna, 27th-28th of January 2020) aims at presenting the project outcomes and at discussing with academics, RPOs key actors and invited speakers about gender equality in research and in RPOs. The event will provide a unique venue to share experiences, case-studies and best practices in the following domains:

Bat
STRUCTURAL AND CULTURAL CHANGE: GENDER EQUALITY PLANS AND EFFORTS
Bi
THE INCLUSION OF THE SEX/GENDER VARIABLES IN RESEARCH
Hiru
