Through the participation project GenderAct the faculty aims to inspire and facilitate local gender-balance efforts at the institute-level. We also want to assist our leaders in facilitating evidence-based cultural change. Enhancing equality in the context of a well-functioning research organization provides material benefits. It bestows greater legitimacy and contributes to increased innovation capacity, value creation and competitiveness.
