First meeting of the CSIC Equality Committees at ICM-Institut de Ciències del Mar

The Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM-CSIC), in coordination with the CSIC Equality Committee and the CSIC Women and Science Committee, is promoting the first meeting of the Equality Committees of the CSIC centers on December 10, 2020. Anna May Masnou, Communication & Outreach Officer and member of the ICMAB Gender Equality Committee, will represent the ICMAB at the conference, where everyone is invited.

The event is part of the European Project Leading Towards Sustainable Gender Equality Plans in Research Institutions (LeTSGEPs), which aims to implement Gender Equality Plans (GEP) with integration of the gender budget approach (GB), in the research centers and universities of the consortium. 

The celebration of the meeting responds to three objectives:
  1. To present the LeTSGEPs project to the CSIC community and to inform about the processes that the ICM is articulating to achieve ts Equality Plan.
  2. To promote the creation of the Network of CSIC's Equality Committees as a space for the generation of knowledge, and the articulation and exchange of good practices around the Gender Equality Plans under the leadership of the CSIC's Equality Committee.
  3. To think about the mechanisms for articulating the CSIC Equality Plan with the Equality Plans of the CSIC centers

On 14 March 2019, the ICMAB organized a similar meeting, in which the CSIC centers awarded with the Equality Distinction were invited, among others. The ICMAB was the first CSIC center to win the CSIC Equality Distinction, in 2018, and we are happy now to share our initiatives and actions, and also learn from other centers. We are sure that it will be a very fruitful meeting.
