Promoting gender equality

MU implements a variety of measures to promote gender equality as part of the University's strategic commitment to the principles of transparency, equality and accountability, while at the same time balancing the work and personal lives of all its employees and students. MU fulfils this commitment at the level of its units and through the activities of the University as a whole.

The framework for the development and implementation of effective measures to achieve the objectives in the priority areas of gender equality at MU and within MU units is contained in the MU Gender Equality Plan 2022-2024.

The measures of the MU Gender Equality Plan 2022-2024 are proposed on the basis of the results and recommendations of the gender audits carried out by MU components in the period 03-07/2021 (the summary report of the gender audit at FI is available here). These findings were supported by content analysis of documents, analysis of statistical data, results from questionnaire surveys, group discussions with selected groups of people, individual and group interviews.

The priority areas of the MU Gender Equality Plan 2022-2024 are:

  1. Transforming the internal culture of the organisation
  2. Gender balance in leadership and decision-making
  3. Combination of work and parenthood
  4. Recruitment, selection and promotion
  5. Measures against sexual harassment and other forms of gender-based violence
  6. Integrating the gender dimension into the content of research and innovation
  7. Collection and monitoring of gender-differentiated data
  8. Allocation of human and financial resources to address gender equality issues

Sexual harassment

One of the priority areas of the MU Gender Equality Plan 2022-2024 is measures against sexual harassment and other forms of gender-based violence.

Detailed information on sexual harassment can be found here. The handling of cases of sexual harassment on MU campus is governed by the Methodology.

MU has established a network of contact persons who provide counselling to victims, witnesses and accused of sexual harassment, who are professionally trained in the issue and take an active interest in the topic. In terms of communication with the person involved in such a case, all contact persons have received tailor-made workshops from Konsent and are also familiar with the process of dealing with such a case within MU. The contact person will listen to you, introduce you to the assistance tools available within and outside MU, depending on your specific situation, and explain the MU resolution process to you. All of this could help you make an informed decision about how to handle your situation. If you wish to refer your case to MU, the contact person is ready to help you with this.

There are contact persons under the MU Counselling Centre, contact persons from individual faculties and a contact person from the Student Chamber of the Academic Senate. It is possible to choose the contact person you wish to contact, whether you are a student, staff member or employee. In addition to choosing whether to contact a female or male, you can also choose to use a contact from your faculty or a contact person outside of your faculty.
