As we approach the conclusion of the H2020 SPEAR project, we want to celebrate together the efforts and achievements our partners achieved in fostering and promoting gender equality in research and academia through the development of Gender Equality Plans (GEP).
We invite GE practitioners, researchers, innovation leaders, and policymakers to join us for SPEAR’S final conference on March 1, 2023! We are organising a hybrid event, with the physical session hosted in Copenhagen, Denmark, under the theme ‘The future of GE, inclusivity and democratic values in Europe through the four perspectives of practices, prerequisites, pushback, and prospectives’.
Increasingly, GE is understood as part of a broader perspective that must necessarily include and integrate a wider understanding of inclusivity. Furthermore, an expanded concept of equality – GE+ – is a transversal issue in democracy and sustainability. This conference aims to explore how the important agendas of GE, inclusivity, and democracy can enhance and strengthen each other, and how ongoing GE projects and initiatives impact these agendas in small and large ways.
