Gender Equality Plan

IPHES approved the Equality of Opportunities Plan for women and men (EN CA) in 2018, with the following main objectives:

  • Work to incorporate the principle of equal opportunities in all areas at the IPHES.
  • Promote a culture of gender equity among the personnel of the IPHES.
  • Guarantee equal opportunities in the access, training and development of the professional career.
  • Promote a neutral remuneration policy that avoids the wage gap.
  • Work towards a management of work time that favours the reconciliation of personal, family and work life.
  • Prevent and act in situations of harassment in the workplace (such as sexual harassment based on sex and morality).
  • Work to have an egalitarian, inclusive and non-sexist communication policy.
