The first Annual Conference of the GEARING-Roles Project will be held in Lisbon on 27 November 2019 under the title of “Recruitment, Retention and Career Progression of Women in Academia”.
This conference seeks to stimulate active and reciprocal exchanges between the project partners, sister projects, experts on gender equality, students, graduates, researchers and policy-makers. Those interested in gender equality and practices in academia are invited to join the team at this event.
As part of this conference, a call for posters to identify innovative initiatives supporting the promotion of women in STEM careers and fostering female vocations will be also launched. In particular, posters on the promotion of gender equality in research and innovation are welcome.
GEARING-Roles is a four-year European Commission funded project, coordinated by the University of Deusto, that aims to increase gender equality in research institutions. The project is implemented by a strong multidisciplinary consortium of 10 European academic and non-academic partners that will design, implement, and evaluate 6 Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) following the steps described in the GEAR tool (define, plan, act and check). The objective of the project is to challenge and transform gender roles and identities linked to professional careers, and work towards real institutional change.
