Equal treatment, equality, participation, health, career paths, flexibility and responsibility are clearly defined aspects of a dynamic study and work environment. Participation is a fundamental prerequisite for motivation, quality, and efficiency at work, which is expressed in everything from inclusive pedagogy to the right to be heard and participate in decision-making processes that affect one’s own work.
ÅAU promotes equal treatment and equality by identifying factors and structures that hinder or foster inequality and unfair treatment.
Gender equality, equality, and accessibility work at ÅAU contributes to the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, as gender equality and equal treatment are seen as prerequisites for sustainable development.
New plans for Gender Equality, Equal Treatment and Accessibility have been drawn for the period 2022-2024. The goal of the Plans for Gender Equality, Equal Treatment and Accessibility is to formulate actions in order to remove barriers to equality and equal treatment.
The Equality Committee regularly monitors the goals and activities stated in the Plan for Gender Equality, Equal Treatment and Accessibility and follows up on the implementation.
The goal is to create an environment that is accessible to everyone and without discrimination, racism, and sexism where staff and students with a variety of backgrounds and tasks are treated equally and can safely participate in all activities.
