Mentoring session on Gender- 6th and 7th October

ResBios Partners meet in person and online to discuss implementing Gender Equality Plans (GEPs)

On the 6th and 7th of October, a mentoring session on gender took place at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics of Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH). The session was conducted in person by our gender experts from University of Gdańsk (UG) Dr Magdalena Żadkowska and Dr hab. Natasza Kosakowska-Berezecka prof.UG.

The 2-day meeting was dedicated to the issue of cross-cultural sensitivity on implementing Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) in various academic institutions.

During the first part of the workshop partners from DUTH in Greece, UG in Poland and Instituto de Ciencias del Mar (ICM) in Spain shared their experience and best practices on implementing GEPs in their institutions as well as discussed cultural challenges and cross-culture communication based on the Geert Hofstede’s Cultural Dimensions Theory.

On the second day of the workshop all participants were supported by our evaluating partner from Aarhus University, Dr. Professor Evanthia K. Schmidt, who discussed several ideas and concepts of preparing mutual theoretical paper based on RESBIOS actions such as cultural influence on implementing GEPs, or gender dimension in scientific education.

The experience of exchanging ideas and creative work together and in-person was an enthusiastic and positive moment for all participants and brought a boost of energy to the further steps of the RESBIOS project.
