The aim of the GEPARD project is to create equal opportunities for women and men in the academic environment. For that purpose, we are preparing the system of actions functioning as a part of organizational policy. The actions will be aimed at eliminating gender-based discrimination (among both the employees and the students) and simultaneously strive to increase diversity in the academic environment.

The project is realized as a part of the international consortium consisting of higher education institutions from Poland, Austria, Hungary, Cyprus and Malta and an Italian enterprise closely connected with the academic environment. Consortium activities are supported by the associated partner institutions.


The main objective of the project is to include and counteract gender-based exclusion by developing by an international consortium a system of activities understood as organizational policy, leading to the elimination of gender discrimination in the academic environment.

All materials were created with funding of ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union.
