2nd GENERA Workshop: Focus on PolicyNew evidence to support gender equality policies and actions in research institutions
Genera is a European project funded under Horizon 2020 to implement Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in physics research organisations. GENERA developed a range of evidence- and practice-based tools and recommendations to assist in the design and implementation of GEPs, which can be also applied to other related fields. The project started in September 2015 and is now ready to share results and experiences with policy makers at the institutional, national, and European level.
The aim of the workshop is to present evidence and results from the project and to discuss how policies that promote the use GEPs (or similar actions) as a tool for achieving structural change in science institutions can be enhanced (e.g. by closing important gaps) and make gender equality targets more easily achievable (e.g. through access to organisational change expertise).
