To actively promote its culture of equality and diversity , EMBL has a very active Equality and Diversity Committee. The committee generates discussion, raises awareness on equality and diversity issues inside and outside of EMBL, and contributes to develop policy and strategy in order to:
- foster an environment that values and supports equality and diversity
- achieve equality and diversity among its hires
- effectively communicate its gender position internally and externally
- prepare its personnel to act as role models in an equal and diverse research environment, within and beyond EMBL
- measure the effectiveness of its efforts to promote equality.
