Gender Equality Plan

The Gender Equality Plan (GEP) was developed to assess the gender equality situation at the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research (European Centre) and develop measures to promote gender equality within the organisation. The GEP is gender inclusive. Everyone is treated with respect regardless of gender identity and expression. We scrutinized the following five key areas:

  • work-life balance and organisational culture;
  • gender balance in leadership and decision-making;
  • gender equality in recruitment and career progression;
  • integration of the gender dimension into research, policy advice and training content; and
  • measures against gender-based violence including sexual harassment.

The GEP is a public document that complies with the General Data Protection Regulation. The GEP was designed following the logic of the Evaluation Framework for Promoting Gender Equality in Research and Innovation.
