Preparation, Implementation and Sustainability of Gender Equality Plans

Our partners, Vilnius University and Vytautas Magnus University, are organising online events on the 19th-20th of May 2021, dedicated to discussing process of designing and implementation of Gender Equality Plans (GEP) at Lithuanian institutions of higher education.

In Lithuania, in accordance with the new Labour Code, since 2017, every organisation with more than 50 employees is obliged to implement gender equality measures. Furthermore, European and Lithuanian universities are encouraged by various international institutions to engage in gender equality work actively. Starting from 2022, all universities will have to have Gender Equality Plan among other institutional measures as eligibility criteria for participating in EC Horizon Europe programme.

The events will focus on the discussions how to integrate Gender Equality Plans into university’s institutional policies, how to establish connections with external stakeholders, how to ensure institutionalisation of equal opportunities and gender equality policy and make it sustainable.

All events will be held in English
