The ACT GenBUDGET Community of Practice (CoP) invites potential new partners (academics, practitioners and experts) to a workshop on gender budgeting in research performing organisations.
The vision of GenBUDGET, a CoP in the H2020 funded ACT project, is to build a community that enhances knowledge and develops shared practices on how to challenge gender biases in decision-making of research performing organisations by the means of Gender Budgeting. The aim of the workshop is to present the CoP’s experience and continue the consensus building of gender budgeting practices. The workshop addresses the CoP’s challenges and needs to develop and implement effectively gender budgeting and for achieving institutional change.
