Gender Equality Plan of the University of Padua 2022 - 2024 (GEP)

The 2022 - 2024 University of Padua Gender Equality Plan (GEP) is a strategically framework that defines the University's strategy to promote gender equality and equal opportunities. Covering a three-year period, the document is divided into objectives and actions across five goals defined by the European Commission:
1. work life balance and organizational culture
2. gender balance in leadership and decision-making
3. gender equality in recruitment and career progression
4. integrating the gender dimension into research and teaching content
5. measures against gender-based violence, including sexual harassment

The GEP is an addition to the University's programming and reporting tools, especially that of a Gender Budget that provides data for upstream context analysis and allows reporting and evaluation of the impact of downstream actions. Along with the Positive Action Plan of the CUG and the Action Plan HRS4R - 2021-2023, the University outlines actions in the field of gender equality in terms of University Programming Plans and the University Budget which considers and accounts for the defined objectives and the allocation of resource to facilitate them.
