Gender and Diversity

The AMOS consortium is fully commited to promoting gender equality at all levels. The consortium is committed to a Gender Action Plan which will:

  • Encourage researchers of both genders to participate in project research
  • Strive to retain all staff
  • Carry out a program of dissemination and mentoring to encourage women to take up science and technology subjects in school
  • Raise gender issues at management level to ensure that there is no gender bias and that both genders are represented at all levels and in all decision-making activities
  • Encourage networking and maintains links with groups and organisations that encourage the participation of women in science and technology and deal with gender mainstreaming
  • Collecte gender-related statistics

The project will aim for at least 40% of both gender involved in the research work. Any teaching, training, or recruitment materials produced will be free from gender stereotypes and use images of female staff alongside male staff in order to promote gender balance in the workforce and to normalise such roles. Partners will ensure that gender-neutral language is used in all documents prepared and disseminated by the consortium.
