Action plan for working environment & equality plan

Equality, Inclusion and Diversity at Astronomy

As part of Stockholm University's work to increase gender equality and quality in research, gender equality work was initiated at the Department of Astronomy in 1994, when the first gender equality plan was drawn up. The gender equality plan should serve as a tool in the work on gender equality. The department has two contact persons for gender issues Prof. Göran Östlin and Anna Björk as Head of the administration, in addition, the work environment group will make the department's work on gender equality visible, keep themselves informed about gender equality work at other departments, and pass information on to the department's employees.

 

Harassment and victimisation

Stockholm University is to be characterised by its excellent environment for work and study. All employees and students shall be treated equally and with respect.
At Stockholm University we shall jointly safeguard our work and study environment. A good environment enables creative development and excellent outcomes for work and study.
At Stockholm University, victimisation, harassment associated with discrimination on any grounds and sexual harassment are unacceptable and must not take place. Victimisation, harassment and sexual harassment all jeopardise the affected person's job satisfaction and chances of success in work or study. As soon as the university becomes aware that someone has been affected, action will be taken immediately.
