The Equality Plan

Antecedents of the Equality Plan

At the request of the Women and Science Commission, the Full Session Meeting of the Inter-University Council of Catalonia officially urged all Catalan universities to start drafting a plan for equality between men and women before the end of April 2007.

To such effect, on 27 October of the same year, the UdG’s Governing Council approved the creation of a “Commission for the Equal Opportunities Plan between Men and Women of the University of Girona”. Its functions were to start the process of drafting the equality plan, to ensure its implementation, to to facilitate its dissemination, and to increase contact with other universities and institutions committed to equality among genders.

Moreover, on 22 March 2007, "ORGANIC LAW 3/2007, of 22 March, for effective equality between men and women" came into effect, establishing that companies with over 250 workers must draft a plan for equal opportunities between men and women- This plan must serve the purpose of preventing any type of discrimination at work between men and women.

In January 2008 it was approved by the Governing Council , as was the Equality Plan Monitoring Commission , which is responsible for presenting the Equality Plan to the Governing Council. Last, on 29 January 2009, the Equal Opportunities Plan between Men and Women was approved by the UdG’s governing council.
