Gender equality and equal treatment work
In the autumn of 2013, the Faculty of Law was the first faculty at Stockholm University to set up a plan gender equality and equal treatment plan. Today, a large part of the work conducted to promote diversity at the Faculty is led by a work group specifically devoted to these questions. The purpose of this group is to support the management's goal of actively promoting equal rights, opportunities and representation at the department as both a study study and a workplace.
About the faculty work group for gender equality and equal treatment
The group works continuously throughout the year to raise awareness of and arouse interest in issues of equality and equal treatment. With employees, students and prospective students in mind, the faculty's common goal is that everyone, regardless of ethnic affiliation, disability, gender, gender identity or expression, religion or other beliefs, sexual orientation, age and socioeconomic background, is treated and met with respect and dignity. Discrimination, harassment and invisibility are completely unacceptable and should not occur at the Faculty of Law.
