Stakeholders

The STAKEHOLDERS section demonstrates the extent of the dissemination and communication strategy of the project through the promotion, scientific consultation and participation of the various entities involved in the pursuit of methods to eliminate inequalities between women and men in Higher Education.

The main focus of the applicability of the emerging strategies of this project is understood to be 4 public institutions of Higher Education, to which case studies were pointed out in the research plan, that allow to respond with guidelines, criteria and recommendations to issues of gender inequality associated to practices and organizational and cultural beliefs, and that are materialized in the application of policies of equal opportunities, as defined before.

In the research carried out within the scope of CaseStudy1, 10 interviews with participants in leadership functions - 3 focus groups - were conducted at this HEI. A Workshop was also held on 8th April, which marked a phase of analysis of the results and conclusions emerging from the research on the main themes and perspectives regarding gender equality and its promotion in this Institution.

After the end of the research period, this HEI showed interest in continuing the work developed by the CIEG Partner, expressing willingness to move forward with proposals for change at institutional level.

In the CaseStudy2 investigation, 7 interviews with participants in leadership functions took place - 3 focus groups. Once again, an online Workshop was held to return the results, which, with high participation, fostered the debate and demonstration of perspectives on the various topics in terms of gender equality and its promotion in this Higher Education institution.

From the research carried out by the CIEG/ISCSP Team, different members of the HEI target of this CaseStudy, understood the urgency to prioritize in the institutional agenda, a strategy that allows objecting situations of gender inequality in future projects, measures and initiatives that the school will plan.

In terms of research, CaseStudy3 allowed the realisation of 8 interviews - 1 focus group, with participants in leadership positions.

Despite the conclusion of CaseStudy3, the research team is in the process of collecting the results which, like the previous ones, will be soon presented to the Higher Education Institution.

For CaseStudy4, the research team made contact with the institution selected for the presentation of the study.

In a meeting with the HEI, a "focal point" was appointed and data on the HEI was requested for further research work. This CaseStudy will also be its conclusion shortly.

Other entities that understand and defend the values inherent to the GE-HEI Project intend with the research results on the subject of gender equality, to emphasize the importance of sharing and transferring knowledge, technologies and experience, to develop their projects and future challenges, both internally and internationally, always taking into consideration their target groups and the unique characteristics of each one.

In this way, the GE-HEI project is not only addressed to Higher Education Institutions but as a consequence to other potential beneficiaries where they could include:


  • Non-governmental organisations;

  • European organisations, associations, networks, etc;

  • Professional and business associations;
