Gender equity, diversity and inclusion

We want to be a faculty that provides equal opportunities for all and where all talents come into play.

Codex for gender equity, diversity and inclusion at Health

Rethinking how we do things and thinking big characterises our approach to the world. Doing so requires a multitude of perspectives.

We therefore share the following goals for equity, diversity and inclusion.

We will:

  • promote a culture that is inclusive and respectful of all employees and students regardless of sex, gender identity, age, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, area of expertise or socio-economic status.
  • work to ensure that the values of gender equity, diversity and inclusion become equally important as the freedom of research, freedom of expression and openness.
  • safeguard free dialogue and respect for different points of view.
  • work to ensure the individual's ability to realise their full potential.
  • be a faculty that inspires bold ideas and free thinking.

Committee for Gender Equity at Health

Health has set up a committee to promote initiatives that contribute to gender equity.

The twelve members of the committee represent students, the academic staff and the technical/administrative staff.

The Committee for Gender Equity at Health will contribute to making Health a leading faculty in the field of gender equity and will achieve this via a long-term cultural and organisational development initiative based on local context, specific initiatives, anchoring and follow-up on initiatives embedded in structures and processes, as well as stakeholder involvement.

The committee meets at least four times a year.

Consultancy panel for gender equity

The Committee for Gender Equity at Health has appointed a consultancy panel to provided different perspectives on the implementation of gender equity at Health based on practical and theoretical experience from the world of academia and society as a whole.

The panel will be composed of up to ten members who possess knowledge of gender equity and who have relevant national and international contacts and networks.
