Objectives of the Equal Opportunities Committee at IBI #

The Equal Opportunities Committee will assist the management team by developing and implementing measures that in the short and long term lead to a more even gender distribution among employees, especially among permanent scientific positions. In addition, we want to promote measures to make IBI an attractive workplace for internationally recruited employees.

The committee shall prepare and assist in the implementation of:

  • Measures that make IBI more attractive to talented teachers and researchers of both genders, including those with an international profile, both in recruitment and retention, including work environment and career development.
  • Measures and procedures specifically aimed at recruiting and retaining skilled women.
