CINTECX promotes the principle of effective equality between men and women in all areas and activities carried out in the center. As the instrument responsible for the transversal incorporation of this principle, it has its own Equality Plan, framed in the III Equality Plan of the University of Vigo, whose implementation, evaluation and monitoring is in charge of an internal commission, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and with the figure of the Equality contact, which acts as a bridge between the center and the Equality Unit of the University of Vigo..

Within the framework of the new European approach to equality policies, Gender+, the Cintecx Equality Plan considers, within the scope of the center’s competences, the following aspects:

  • Reconciliation of personal, family and work life and organizational culture sensitive to inequality.
  • Gender balance in leadership and decision-making.
  • Integration of the gender perspective in research.
  • Equality in access and promotion of the research career
  • Measures against gender violence, including sexual harassment.
