The research sector’s intrinsic features and characteristics have generated persistent gender gaps, with various structural barriers in place, across research and innovation activities, that require specific actions and initiatives.
To that end, NOVA.id.FCT’s management has approved unanimously, last February, the 4th, 2022, the policy for Gender equality, Equal Opportunities and Diversity Plan.
This plan assumes a central role, outlining the following main guidelines:
Integrate the perspective of gender and diversity in NOVA.id.FCT’s strategic planning (in leadership, decision-making and measures against gender-based violence);
Encourage measures to reconcile its organizational culture with a healthy work/family life balance;
Develop a culture of gender equality and diversity in the scientific community.
