Gender Equality Plan

The Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences (ASU) is a public research institution focused on basic and applied research in the field of astronomy and astrophysics. As an employer, ASU is committed to fostering a culture that promotes equality and maintains a working, learning, and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its employees are respected. Ensuring equal opportunities for women and men within the institute is a prerequisite for achieving this goal.

ASU adopted its first Gender Equality Plan (GEP) in June 2022. The GEP will be implemented in the years 2022-2025 and its implementation is going to be executed by the Gender Equality Team and overseen by the director of the Institute. The GEP consists of a set of actions in few key focus areas that are described in the document.
