GARCIA is concerned with the implementation of actions in European Universities and research centres to promote a gender culture and combat gender stereotypes and discriminations. By taking into account the organisations, but also their broader national context, this project aims to develop and maintain research potential and skills of both, women and men researchers, in order to sustain the quality of their working conditions. Particular attention is given to the early stages of academic and scientific career, which are usually little considered in gender equality plans, even though the current recruitment practices within Academy make wide use of non-tenure track positions. These unstable career perspectives occur at a life stage in which important choices are made in private life, particularly for women. Moreover, creativity and autonomy – fundamental conditions to achieve original and meaningful research – are necessarily affected by the high instability of their professional life. The project concentrates on both, STEM and SSH disciplines. The main aim shall be to achieve substantive equality between men and women in academic careers, at all levels, starting from the achievement of the PhD. It is planned to implement structural change actions, mainly focused on: gender regimes; awareness raising on gendered practices; gender equality in management and decision making; the phenomenon of Leaky Pipeline; the implicit gendered subtexts in evaluating “excellence” in recruitment and selection processes.
