Chalmers is a technical university with a clear basic idea: to face complex, global societal challenges, together with other actors, for the common future of all people. To accomplish this Chalmers works with gender equality and equal opportunities in several ways throughout the organization, both as a higher education institution and as an employer.
The new gender and equal opportunities plan connects Chalmers' vision, with the legal requirements placed on the university regarding equality. The activities contribute to the UN's sustainability goals, Agenda 2030, and follow the Criteria for the Gender Equality Plan (GEP) according to Horizon Europe.
The purpose of this plan is for the organization to get an overview of Chalmers's different goals within gender and equal treatment. The strategies set the direction for the university’s ongoing work to achieve an environment characterized by equality that creates the conditions for creativity, commitment, and curiosity, both for students and employees.
