Gender and diversity policy
The faculty deems it important to devote attention to gender and diversity policy, and has therefore appointed the committee ‘gender policy’ in 2014. The committee has, among other things, given advice regarding the ways in which the faculty can stimulate more women to work and study at our faculty. In 2022 the University has published the Gender Equality Plan (GEP) which summarizes existing and planned interventions for gender equality at Radboud University for 2021-2025
The gender policy contains a number of action points that should help to accomplish this. These points include: more women in the selection committees, a premium of €50.000 for continued research during maternity leave, and targets for achieving a certain percentage of female researchers at the faculty.
The policy has been drawn up for the period of 2016-2020. Gender and diversity policy is an important aspect in the new strategic plan which is currently being written and will be issued in 2021.
