Gender equality mission

Considérant comme nécessaire la réflexion sur la question de l’égalité femmes/hommes, tant les écarts de carrières et de statuts entre les femmes et les hommes restent grands à l’université, l’USMB mène cette mission autour des axes suivants :

  • develop and consolidate an inventory of the situation in terms of parity, in interaction, in particular, with the social balance sheet of the establishment,
  • identify and detect the conditions for the development of any gender-based discrimination,
  • propose to the institution's authorities, on the basis of this observation, and on the basis of the experiences already developed in other institutions, ways of progress,
  • advance knowledge of gender issues and raise awareness in the academic community,
  • promote a dynamic of equality between women and men.

A Gender Equality Commission composed of BIATSS staff, teacher-researchers and teachers is working on the development of a Gender Equality Charter.

Campaign "Stop gender and sexual violence in higher education"

Equality between women and men is declared by the President of the Republic to be a "great national cause" of the five-year period. The commitment to gender equality was reaffirmed by Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation on 8 March 2018: the awareness-raising campaign on gender and sexual violence in higher education is one of the priority measures.

A reception and listening unit to combat gender-based and sexual violence has been set up. This system, which allows all victims to benefit from support and assistance in the event of gender-based and sexual violence, has been operational since the start of the 2018 school year.
To contact this cell, a number to dial: the 3919. A free and dedicated telephone number, which guarantees anonymity.
