Action Plan for Gender Equality and Diversity

The Research Council’s “Action Plan for Gender Equality and Diversity” formulates key principles, objectives, and measures to promote equal opportunities for and participation of women and men in the professional life at the RCFI. This includes the promotion of equal representation of women and men, the avoidance of gender-specific disadvantages, the filling of job openings on equal terms oriented on the quality of the applicants at all qualification and employment levels, and the optimization of the reconciliation of work and family for the employees of the RCFI.

In addition to the gender aspect, the RCFI’s Action Plan also highlights the residency of its employees, applicants, external reviewers, and other individuals with a professional relation to the Council. This is to highlight the EU’s principle of reciprocity in research and research funding.

The results of the data collection, the objectives and measures are to be incorporated into the ongoing efforts at the RCFI to reach equality and diversity at our institution. This first Action Plan for Equality and Diversity of the RCFI covers the period 2022-2025.
