GENIE is a ten-year gender equality initiative at Chalmers. Background and motive of Genie
Like other technical universities, Chalmers has a very low proportion of women in its faculty. However, research shows that a more even gender balance leads to greater scientific success and a better working environment, for both men and women. As a strategy to become more excellent, Chalmers aims to increase the proportion of women among its faculty.
Overall goals are to increase the proportion of female faculty, remove the structural and cultural obstacles that hamper women’s careers, create a working environment that is diverse and inclusive and supportive of excellence in research and teaching.
Content: Genie mainly consists of two parts: concrete and tailored action plans, to achieve long-term cultural and structural change in the departments, and direct support to increase the fraction of females in the faculty.
