Transparent And Resilient Gender Equality Through Integrated Monitoring Planning and Implementation

Project description

Gender equality in business schools

Gender equality represents a critical issue in business and particularly in decision-making bodies. The nature and multidisciplinary characteristics of business and management (B&M) schools make them an excellent research field for the examination of gender equality. The EU-funded TARGETED-MPI project will study gender inequality in B&M schools through the development and efficient performance of innovative gender equality plans (GEPs), focusing on the diverse academic cultures and socio-economic environments in Europe (Belgium, Greece, Sweden and the United Kingdom) and Lebanon. The project will apply action-based research and a transparent end-to-end stakeholder involvement strategy that is fundamental for the development of GEPs, to identify apparent and covert gender prejudices and obstacles in partner organisations. A network of Gender Equality Observatories will be established in the participating B&M schools to encourage GEPs and support the diffusion of the results.
