In 2014 the Institució CERCA created an Equal Opportunities and Diversity Management Committee to discuss and propose tools and measures for eliminating the biases and barriers that prevent highly qualified human resources realising their full potential.

A range of measures has been implemented on the recommendations of this committee including a model equal opportunities plan that research centres have used as the starting point for their own plans, and a video addressed to the members of scientific advisory committees on how to avoid gender bias when recruiting for senior posts.

The members of the Equality Committee are:

Teresa Rosas

Talent and Gender Officer (CREAF)

Neus Prats

Core Facility Manager (IRB Barcelona)

Michela Svaluto Moreolo

Senior researcher & Director of Quality Programs (CTTC)

Maria Targa

Manager of the Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES)

Xavier Lasauca

Head of Knowledge Management - General Research Directorate (guest member)

Laia Pellejà
