Gender Equality Plan

An Action Plan for Equality and Diversity of the Research Council Faroe Islands (RCFI) will formulate the key principles, objectives, and measures to promote equal opportunities for women and men.

The aim of the Action Plan will be to achieve equal 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.

Specific training modules will raise awareness for gender aspects in research. 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 will cover the period 2022-2025. By April 2025, the Action Plan will be revised and updated according to a new baseline analysis.
