Gender Awereness and Sensitivity


TRIGGER (TRansforming Institutions by Gendering contents and Gaining Equality in Research, 2017). Besides implementing five gender action plans in as many European universities, and promoting mutual learning initiatives inside and outside the project consortium, the TRIGGER project devoted a particular attention to the wider debate about how institutional change towards gender equality can actually happen, with the involvement of other eight EC-funded structural change “sister” projects. One of the outcomes of the project is the development of an integrated elementary model of the process of change described in these Guidelines.

The STAGES Project

Structural Transformation to Achieve Gender Equality in Science (STAGES project) Guidelines“, 2015.  These Guidelines have been drawn out of the experience of five action plans of structural change addressing gender inequality in science from an integrated perspective developed under the STAGES European project.

The “Gender Equality in Academia and Research (GEAR) tool” provides universities and research organisations with practical advice and tools through all stages of institutional change, from setting up a gender equality plan to evaluating its real impact.
