Catherine Gater (European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI)) presented the newly created Equal Opportunities Strategy for ELIXIR.
The strategy is designed to form part of the Handbook of Operations. It covers recommendations on equal opportunities for the ELIXIR Hub and Nodes, and also ELIXIR’s advisory and governance committees, trainers, events, tools and services and Communities of Practice.
The Equal Opportunity Strategy for ELIXIR outlines the data and metrics that the Hub and Nodes are recommended to collect relating to equality and diversity. The strategy covers the cycle for data collection, monitoring and feeding this back into practice.
Finally, the Equal Opportunities Strategy describes strategies for establishing an ELIXIR Equal Opportunities Toolkit and collaborations with other networks and projects.
