The new Equal Opportunities Committee’s Kick-off meeting took place in Bern on 28th February. We are glad to announce the composition of the committee, which is constituted of volunteers from our institutions and has a good gender balance. Prof. Laura Marchal-Crespo (UNIBE) has been elected as head of the committee.
During this first meeting, the committee started identifying the challenges ahead and discussed the valuable comments made by the Review Panel. The committee has been allocated its own budget and will be meeting on a monthly basis to ensure the effective development of its activities . It will also be reporting its progress directly to the Steering Committee and the Director. The next meeting will take place on 22nd March in Bern.
