Chalmers Gender Equality Study

This week it is time for Chalmers gender equality study. You will receive a questionnaire, and it is important that you complete it as soon as possible, by October 30, 2011.
The purpose of the survey is to provide a basis for our work to ensure an environment free from all forms of harassment and degrading treatment. The 2005 gender equality survey showed that there were environments and situations that work poorly from the gender perspective. This time we have included questions about some of these situations, partly to see if the measures taken so far have yielded results, but above all, to see where the work needs to be strengthened or the focus changed.
