Jožef Stefan Institute adopted its Gender Equality Plan
To this end, it includes a set of measurable commitments and proposed actions to promote structural change that will support equal opportunities for all employees, thereby contributing to a supportive and safe working environment, and fostering creativity in research and scientific excellence.
The GEP was developed by a consortium under the ATHENA project – 'Implementing Gender Equality Plans to Unlock Research Potential of RPOs and RFOs in Europe', funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. A comprehensive internal analysis of gender equality at the JSI preceded the in-depth development of measures and indicators in areas such as work-life balance, gender balance in leadership and career advancement, integrating a sex/gender dimension into research, and the prevention of gender-based violence.
Prior to its adoption, the GEP was shared with and reviewed by the JSI Scientific Advisory Boards. Additionally, a Gender Equality Plan Implementation (GEPI) Committee tasked with introducing and implementing institutional changes at the JSI was established.
