Fostering equal opportunities: Gender Equality Plan

In January 2022, the AO Research Institute Davos (ARI) established an ARI Gender Equality Working Group (ARI GEWG) to adopt a Gender Equality Plan (GEP) 2023– 25.

It covers five areas of content recommended by the European Commission, and its objectives are formulated on the basis of an audit conducted at ARI, including an ARI employee survey, sex-disaggregated data collection, analysis of existing policies in the institute, and a review of solutions used in research institutes around the globe.

Its primary objective is to ensure that ARI is an inclusive working environment that respects equality and diversity, where everyone feels free from discrimination and has the same opportunities for career advancement. ARI has planned several measures for promoting equal opportunities. You can find them in the ARI Gender Equality Plan 2023–25.
