2021-2023 action plan for professional equality between women and men


The preparation of the 2021-2023 action plan was an opportunity for Aix-Marseille University (AMU) to take stock of all the actions already implemented in favor of professional equality between women and men. This review allowed us to renew and reinforce certain actions, to propose improvements for others, and also to plan new actions for the next three years. At the beginning of December 2020, several working groups were set up with members representing the university's services, components and staff, and with the active participation of the trade unions. A CSR steering committee was set up, involving the Human Resources Department, the Vice-Presidents in charge of human resources, quality of life at work (QWL), health and disability, and gender equality and anti-discrimination, to coordinate the various issues. All the actions proposed in this plan are concrete and operational, accompanied by monitoring and evaluation indicators defined in collaboration with the Quality vice-presidency, are subject to strong institutional support guaranteeing their implementation (human and financial resources, recognition and enhancement of the work done, communication strategy), and have been designed to be consistent with each other.
