Eurodoc launches its “Gender Equality in Research” Campaign

Eurodoc launches its “Gender Equality in Research” Campaign 680 449 Open and Universal Science (OPUS) Project

In recent years, Eurodoc has taken significant strides towards advancing Gender Equality in academia, alongside a heightened focus on diversity and inclusion. Last year, their initiative spotlighted the invaluable contributions of female researchers within the Eurodoc community through the “Women in Research” campaign. Building upon this momentum, they are thrilled to announce the expansion of this campaign to embrace researchers of all genders, underscoring our belief that everyone plays a pivotal role in promoting gender equality in research environments.

Symbolically launching on March 8th, International Women’s Day, our campaign seeks to address the multifaceted nature of gender discrimination as outlined in the Istanbul Convention. It encompasses not only discrimination faced by women due to socially prescribed roles but also extends to challenges encountered by individuals whose gender identity or sexual orientation deviates from societal norms. Understanding that these dimensions of discrimination stem from deeply entrenched cultural paradigms, we aim to create a platform where diverse voices can converge to advocate for equal rights across all spheres of life.

At the heart of their campaign lies a commitment to amplifying the stories of researchers who defy stereotypes and champion inclusivity within academia. Each participant brings a unique perspective, reflecting a rich tapestry of backgrounds, experiences, and aspirations in the pursuit of knowledge. By sharing these narratives, they hope to cultivate a diverse array of role models, demonstrating that excellence in research transcends traditional notions of merit and is inclusive of all who are passionate about advancing knowledge.

As they invite researchers to join our campaign, they encourage reflection on the following questions:

  1. Who are you, and where are you from?
  2. What is your research about?
  3. Why did you pursue a career in research?

In addition, participants are invited to share their insights on why gender equality is important to them and offer examples of strategies for fostering inclusivity within research environments.
