Replaces document: Action plan for gender mainstreaming 2021–2025, FS 1.1-979-21
The Swedish government has assigned Umeå University2 with the task to continue its work on gender mainstreaming to ensure the organisation achieves the gender equality policy goals. Each higher education institution (HEI) is to work on an institution-specific plan based on development needs, goals and activities that the HEI intends to implement and which describes how gender equality will be integrated and form part of the HEI’s regular activities.
Umeå University’s vision includes a clear ambition to ensure that gender equality permeates the entire organisation and for students and staff to be able to study and work at the University on equal terms. On this basis, and to ensure the inclusion of the entire organisation in Umeå University’s gender mainstreaming strategy, this document is based on a problem analysis carried out by each of the University’s faculties, the Umeå School of Education, the University Administration and the University Library in 2021. The work was completed in cooperation with the trade unions and student unions.
