Gender Equality Mission

The USMB considers it necessary to reflect on the issue of equality between women and men, as the differences in careers and status between women and men at the university remain so great, and carries out this mission along the following lines:

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

A commission for equality between women and men made up of BIATSS staff, teacher-researchers and teachers is working on the elaboration of a charter for equality between women and men.

More Equality Festival

Taking the time to ask questions, accepting confrontation, imagining solutions, but above all reflecting together and debating together around questions of equality, this is the objective of the different meetings of this festival.
