Executive Summary

The Mutual Learning workshop “Towards the identification of best practices in the Gender Equality Arena within an organisation” was organised by CNR, CNTI and CIC nanoGUNE in the context of the project R&I PEERS funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, on November 7th in Rome, Italy.

The workshop, which was realised using the participatory methodology of the Structured Democratic Dialogue (SDD), brought together fifteen (15) experts from the gender equality field representing universities, governmental and scientific bodies as well as enterprises to discuss the existing practices across Gender Equality Plans (GEPs).


The Triggering Question (TQ) of the workshop was:

"What existing practices can be identified to facilitate the development and implementation of Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in academia and research organisations?"

In response to the TQ, the 15 participants came up with 29 ideas, which were categorized in 4 clusters. Following the voting process, 22 ideas received one or more votes and were structured to create the influence MAP shown below.
