Gender policies

For more than twenty years the polytechnic community has been questioning itself on the broad theme of Equal Opportunity, which includes attention to the gender balance of the student population and staff: from the Women: Engineering Profession project in the early 2000s to the current WeAreHERe project.

It collects and interprets gender data at the University level the Gender Equality Report with an analysis dedicated to faculty, technical-administrative staff and the student community. If the Gender Balance is triennial, an updated subset of particularly significant indicators is available annually in the Gender Data Monitoring section

The Gender Equality Plan (GEP) and the Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP) are correlated and interconnected to the Gender Balance Sheet and are fundamental in the pursuit of the University's gender policies.

The Gender Observatory monitors and coordinates gender policies at the University level. By reinterpreting national and international good practices and by participating in the CRUI gender table with national guidelines, the Gender Observatory is an advisory body that, appointed by Rectoral Decree, pursues gender objectives in the new strategic plan and, confirming the adherence to and implementation of the principles of the European Charter for Researchers, puts in place initiatives aimed at monitoring and governing equal opportunities in relation to the various aspects in which diversity is declined, starting from gender.
