Gender equality

 Egalité Version Finale

Laws and public policies, feminist movements, and community associations have made considerable progress in terms of equal rights and the relative status of women and men. Nevertheless, inequalities persist and still amount to considerable gaps: lower wages and pensions for women, career differences, violence, and low representation of women in all the highest intellectual and decision-making bodies, including in higher education and research. This situation remains despite the fact that socio-economic studies demonstrate that diversity is a factor in performance, creativity, innovation and social success.

The Université Côte d’Azur is committed to a global, ambitious and innovative approach to professional equality for women and men.

The ambition is to be an exemplary and innovative organization by proposing an action plan that meets international standards. Thus, the gender equality mission of the Université Côte d'Azur, created in January 2018, aims to identify and prevent discrimination based on gender stereotypes and to promote professional equality for women and men within the institution. It is intended for everyone, including the leadership, teaching and research faculty and administrative staff, as well as the student community. The gender equality mission is based on an "equality" network made up of representatives from the various members of the Université Côte d'Azur. The role of the "equality" network is to identify needs, carry out concerted and/or shared actions, disseminate information and communicate within the Université Côte d'Azur and beyond.
