Towards Equality in Science

Towards Equality in Science is a workshop for hiring and selection committees at the Faculty of Science organised by the Gender and Diversity committee (GenDi).

    Type of course, training or programme


    The faculty board has asked the Gender and Diversity committee (GenDi) to set up and organise a workshop to reduce inequality in the hiring and selection process. A subcommittee of GenDi (consisting of Prof. Herma Cuppen, Dr. Inge Bleijenbergh, Prof. Renate Loll, Dr. Colin Logie, Dr. Claudia Lüttke) carefully planned a training programme of half a day.

    Goals of the training

    • Create awareness on inequality in academia and the underlying processes contributing to it.
    • Create recognition of implicit bias at several stages in the hiring and selection process in themselves and others.
    • Inspire BAC members to have concrete ideas on how to structure an inclusive recruitment and selection process.


    For whom?

    The training is aimed at all permanent staff of the Faculty of Science who take part in hiring and selection committees for academic positions at all levels.


    The faculty board requires all internal members of hiring and selection committees with a permanent contract to have completed the training.


    The workshop will be given regularly to give ample opportunity to participate. To sign up to receive notifications for upcoming dates, go to Supersaas.
