Improving the gender diversity management in materials research institutions

Improving the gender diversity management in materials research institutions

Objective

DIVERSITY is a 36 months CSA (Supporting) project involving 14 partners from 11 European countries (Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Slovenia, UK, Slovakia, Greece). It represents a pilot initiative of networking policy makers, human resources experts, women scientists’ networks, and scientists to support the institutional culture change for a greater inclusiveness of women scientists in materials research organisations. The project objective is to identify policies and implementation activities to improve gender diversity management in materials research organisations by: a) strengthening the role of women in scientific decision making, b) supporting the materials research institutions to create their individual profile on the basis of principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for their Recruitment, c) enhancing the solidarity and involvement of men decision makers in promoting gender equality in scientific decision making , d) raising awareness within the scientific community, in the general public and among policy makers about gender and research. The activities planned are logically organised in 6 work packages, which can be grouped into three stages: In the first stage, the focus will be on benchmarking and monitoring the gender equality & diversity measures in participating research institutions in order to identify the best practice examples as well as the reasons behind low participation of women in decision making process. The second stage aims to support the materials research institutions to create their individual profile on the basis of the principles of the Charter and Code and to provide guidelines and recommendations for improving the transparency in recruitment, promotion and nomination in order to increase the proportion of women at the highest levels of research. The third stage is dedicated to awareness raising and dissemination activities.
