Women’s advancement and leadership in the biomedical research centres of Catalonia II: bringing about change
New demands for biomedical research centres are related to gender balance in research teams, gender balance in decision-making, integrating gender in research, and the implementation of Gender-Equality Action Plans (GEAPs). Several approaches for the new demands andchallenges for gender equality where proposed in the Girona Summit. The approaches are related to: analysing gender equality issues, removing unconscious bias through cultural awareness, improving research by integrating a gender perspective, fostering women’s career advancement and development, ensuring gender balance and transparency in decision-making positions, modernising policies and management practices, and representing the points of view of each stakeholder (individual, research centre, funding agency and policy-maker). Although not exhaustive of all possible options, the value of these approaches is being formulated on the basis of the experiences of the delegates of the Catalan research centres. The Hypatia of Alexandria Charter was proposed, discussed, endorsed and signed by the 19 centres of health and biomedical research of Catalonia, and the policy-making and assessment responsibilities of the Health Department of the Catalan Government.
