Gender Equality

The Working Party on Gender Equality was formed in September 2015 with a mandate from the Academic Council in response to an initiative of the Student Association for Gender Equality (SAGE). The working party is presided by MATA Director Michele Chang, and comprises members of academic and administrative staff, as well as student representatives from both the Bruges and Natolin campuses.

Since its inception, the achievements of the Working Party have included, among others: developing and regularly revising the College’s Code of Conduct; providing annual workshops on consent; expanding academic resources on gender equality; introducing gender scoreboards in all academic departments; promoting gender mainstreaming; creating all-gender bathrooms; creating a Welfare Office; and most recently, drafting a Gender Equality Charter.
