The Gender Equality Report of the University of Bologna encapsulates the recent debate and growing awareness about phenomena of segregation and gender discrimination, and their impact on the realization of equal opportunities both within the University and at a country level.
The figures presented allow to bring into focus the strengths and criticalities of the institution, thus making the Gender Equality Report a strategic document that stimulates reflection on the possible positive actions to implement, on the one hand, and a map from which to start to draw a path towards full gender equality for all the members of the University community – students, teaching and professional staff – on the other.
The Gender Equality Plan (GEP) of the Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna is a policy document covering the next three years (2021-2024) with which the University aims to implement actions and projects to reduce gender inequalities and to enhance diversity with regard, for example, to age, culture, physical ability, sexual orientation, multilingualism.
The Gender Equality Plan is a tool designed to encourage this cultural change, with the aim of continuing to build an honest and communicative learning and work environment where people are treated equally and there is no discrimination.
The planning and design actions in this document intend, to give continuity and coherence to policies already being pursued by our University and explore goals and actions able to overcome the obstacles that still exist to gender equality.
