Great news from the EQUAL-IST Project

We have developed an online toolkit for designing and implementing GEPs in ICT/IST research institutions!

Our toolkit offers you support for structural changes in terms of gender equality via agile examples of good practices, concrete initiatives, tools and guidelines

You can visit the Toolkit, by clicking here

The Toolkit is targeted at Research Organizations with a focus on ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and IST (Information System Technology) with an interest in setting up actions aimed at improving and achieving gender balance in a research field where women are still a minority and where scientific and applied research are male oriented in many different ways.

We advise you to consult the section on “Why this toolkit and how to use it before starting to navigate”, then register and use the search functionality to navigate contents per areas or what we named ‘categories’ (Mobilizing stakeholders, Governance and Decision Making, Human Resources Management, Teaching and Student Services, Gender in Research Content and Institutional Communication and type of information (Good Practice, Guidelines, Inspirational Examples, Promising practices, Tools and Rationale).

Registered Users can:

  • Comment on each content items
  • rate the proposed practises and tools based on their own experience and perception of how a specific example can be relevant, transferable and innovative in terms of fostering gender equality in ICT/IS research environments.

Don’t forget to send us your feedback by rating contents and to submit your own example to enrich the Toolkit!
