Gender budgeting


The annual drafting of the Gender Budgeting has now become a consolidated event that joins the numerous other initiatives that the University, thanks to the valuable creative and active contribution of the Equal Opportunities Committee, has undertaken for some years to raise awareness among the academic community on the issues of gender inequality and respect for diversity, in all its forms and expressions. Among these initiatives, we must necessarily mention the drafting of the three-year positive action plan (PAP) and the Gender equality plan (GEP), the organization of initiatives of interdisciplinary teaching characterized by the adoption of a gender perspective, the implementation of orientation and training projects as well as third mission events to introduce female students to STEM subjects and, finally, the adoption of guidelines for the protection of alias identity and alias career for transgender people. By its very nature, the University is a place for everyone and a laboratory of ideas. Promoting reflection within the academic community on these issues is therefore essential for our University to truly be a driver of social change, aimed at designing a more equitable and inclusive future.

The Gender Budgeting represents a useful tool for the University to annually monitor the evolution of gender inequality within its community. The objective is to consolidate awareness of the existence of a gender gap within us and, therefore, promote policies and actions aimed at reducing this gap in order to give equal career opportunities to women and men and increase the working well-being of everyone.

The 2021 Gender Budgeting was drawn up, as usual, according to the 'Guidelines for the Gender Report in Italian Universities' developed in 2019 by the CRUI. However, this year we decided to broaden our spectrum of observation by paying attention to other elements of "diversity" such as citizenship and disability. For now, this analysis has been conducted only on the student community, postponing the extension of these observations to the community of teaching and research staff and technical and administrative staff to future editions. The ultimate objective is to provide a snapshot, as closely as possible to reality, of the diversity present within the academic community, in order to allow the implementation of effective actions of inclusion and valorization of talents.
