Equality in the CSIC

As a consequence of the application of the Plan for Equality between Women and Men in the AGE and its public bodies, the CSIC Delegate Commission for Equality was launched. In this Commission, the representation of the Trade Unions and the Administration converge and its activity extends to the diagnosis and proposal of actions regarding gender equality affecting CSIC employees.


In the context of its actions, the Plan for Equality between Women and Men was approved at the CSIC in December 2013 as a result of a process of reflection on the existing needs to guarantee effective equality.

Although significant objectives were achieved with this first plan, the pre-existing equality gap made it necessary to promote different actions that led to the approval of the II Plan for Equality between Women and Men in the AGE and its public bodies in November 2015. The CSIC, joining this line of action and in order to continue identifying and removing the hidden obstacles that might block the opportunities of its employees, approved its II Plan for Equality between Women and Men in December 2015.

The Plan for Equality is annually evaluated in order to know its degree of success and, if needed, to reformulate its objectives, measures and indicators.

CSIC’s Delegate Commission for Equality actions include the launching, in close collaboration with the Commission of Women and Science, of the "Gender Equality Accreditation Seal" in 2018 with the objective of recognising the CSIC centres or institutes that promote both the gender perspective as a transversal category in all aspects of its day-to-day running and the adoption of measures to remove the barriers found by women while exercising their profession.
