Taking stock of the lessons learned through the project, the Gender-SMART team organises its hybrid final conference: “Harvesting lessons learned: Inclusive Workplaces & Sustainable Impact” which will take place in Brussels, Belgium and online on October 19, 2022.
Gender-SMART FINAL CONFERENCE: Harvesting lessons learned: Inclusive Workplaces & Sustainable Impact
The aim is to share thoughts on the people, work, ideas, and commitments within our organisations with target groups (Sister institutes and stakeholders in the field of agriculture, food, and life sciences); good practices on institutionalizing and sustaining Gender Equality Action Plans for Research Performing and Research Funding Organisations (RPOs & RFOs); and pass on the experience gained to young potential change agents as the legacy of our project and inspire the next generation to put gender equity upfront and central in their work and life.
