Gender Equality Plans Implementation Committees have been established at each project partner organisation implementing a Gender Equality Plan
The Gender Equality Plans Implementation Committees (GEPI) Committees are key actors for the ATHENA project and especially for each project partner organisation as they will be involved together with the core consortium partners to transmit co-produced knowledge on gender equality and facilitate and promote the institutional change through the development and implementation of the Gender Equality Plans (GEPs).
To achieve gender equality in the ATHENA research performing and funding organisations (RPO/RFO), institutional transformations are needed and will lead to change in the official holding composition, reducing women and men inequalities. GEPI Committees will act as connections between ATHENA’s team in each RPO/RFO and the rest of the institutional community. Therefore, the main objective of the GEPI Committees is to facilitate the institutional change towards gender equality.
The ATHENA GEPI Committees will be involved in a participatory process and capacity building activities, as well as in the development, implementation and monitoring of the tailored institutional GEPs!
