Gender equality is a fundamental value of the European Union.
Following the Guidance on Gender Equality Plans issued by the EC, gender equality:
• Helps to improve the quality and impact of research and innovation by helping to ensure it is reflective of and relevant to the whole of society;
• Creates better working environments that enable good quality research and learning and help maximise the potential and talents of all staff;
• Helps to attract and retain talent by ensuring that all staff can be confident that their abilities will be valued and recognised fairly and appropriately.
A Gender Equality Plan (GEP) is adopted by organizations or institutions in order to assess their procedures and practices, identify gender bias and implement measures to correct any bias, set targets and monitor progress in gender equality via indicators.
