Leading Towards Sustainable Gender Equality Plans in research performing organisations


Europe's societies are working hard to eliminate all types of discrimination associated with gender and to enhance concrete gender equality plans (GEPs). The EU-funded LeTSGEPs project intends to connect several research-performing organisations to plan and perform actions that will result in systemic institutional transformation concerning gender prejudices. The project will also take advantage of the Gender Equality in Academia and Research (GEAR) instrument developed by the European Institute for Gender Equality. LeTSGEPs will promote the use of gender budgeting (GB) to face discrimination against women by integrating them in the budgetary process, aiming to eliminate marginalisation and exclusion from economic and political activities. The project will raise institutional concern on the significance of GEPs and GB through accurate training of the administrative personnel.
