Gender equality plan 2021-2024

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.

As part of a higher education institution, it is our duty to offer new generations a different path free from prejudice and stereotypes, a path embracing the freedom of people and appreciating their individuality and originality.

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, a community which conveys trust, a sense of belonging and shared goals, and consequently enables the entire institution to grow.

The planning and design actions in this document intend, on the one hand, to give continuity and coherence to policies already being pursued by our University and, on the other hand, explore goals and actions able to overcome the obstacles that still exist to gender equality and enhance diversity based on the experience of recent years and GEPs already produced as part of the Plotina project.
