This Toolkit is for all those Research Performing Organizations (RPOs) and Research Institutions (RFOs) who want to implement gender equality policies and processes in their organizations in order to prevent and overcome gender inequalities and biases. It is a result of the work carried out by the PLOTINA project during three intense years. We hope it will be helpful for other RPOs and RFOs willing to undertake the path towards gender equality. The direct targets are therefore Academia Governance members and top managers; researching, teaching and administrative staff, and ultimately, students.
The Toolkit presents conceptual frameworks, supporting tools and templates that have been experimented and enhanced by the PLOTINA Consortium. The content has been organised based on the 4 main phases of the gender equality process: audit, GEP design, implementation and evaluation.
