Gender equality

Our gender equality policy consists of promoting gender-balanced teams, ensuring gender equality in decision-making bodies, and always taking into account the gender dimension in research and innovation to improve the quality and social relevance of the results. 

At CICA we have adopted the Gender Equality Plan developed by the UDC, which, in general terms, is structured around 4 working axes: 

  1. Governance, Social Responsibility and Transversality.
  2. Gender perspective in teaching and research activities.
  3. Prevention and intervention against gender violence
  4. Reconciliation, personal development and professional career

The measures foreseen within each axis are aimed at the three groups that make up the university community (teachers, students and administrative and services staff), as well as society in general.

Some gender data in CICA:

  • More than 50% of the staff are women.
  • 8 out of 19 research groups are coordinated by a woman.
  • 48% of the principal investigators and postdoctoral researchers are women.
  • 54% of the predoctoral fellows are women.
