The Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA-CSIC) kicked off its Gender Equality Committee in 2019. It aims to promote awareness and actions to ensure equal ease of access to resources and opportunities, valuing different behaviors, aspirations and needs, regardless of gender. The Committee works to prevent inequalities and discrimination that may generate situations of inferiority for reasons of gender or sexual orientation.

Action priorities:

  • Ensure communication and implementation of equality policies. Support and follow up.
  • Report the institutional activities and decisions on gender equality policies.
  • Collect, give visibility and convey the proposals put formulated by the IDAEA staff.
  • Carry out a continuous critical analysis in terms of gender in all areas of the Institute to identify possible inequalities.
  • Promote awareness-raising activities and protocols for the IDAEA staff.
  • Take action on what is diagnosed in order to progress towards a 100% inclusive and egalitarian Institute model.
  • Provide support to the victims in the case of equality violations, and make, if appropriate, the relevant claims.
  • Encourage the Director to put forward new measures aimed at promoting equality to the CSIC governing bodies.
