Gender Equality Plan (GEP)

Institute of History of the Czech Academy of Sciences (IH) is a public research institution focused on research of history from the historical beginnings of the Czech state (cca 10th century) up to the modern time.

IH 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 all people within the institute is a prerequisite for achieving this goal.

Management of IH prepared its first Gender Equality Plan (GEP) in January 2022.

The GEP is mainly focused on these areas:

  • Work-life balance and organizational culture
  • Gender balance in leadership and decision-making
  • Gender equality in recruitment and career progression
  • Integration of the gender dimension into research
  • Measures against gender-based violence, including sexual harassment
