Statement of Principles: Promoting the Equality and Status of Women in Research

The 2014 GRC “Statement of Principles and Actions for Shaping the Future: Supporting the Next Generation of Researchers” includes the principle of “Attracting and retaining the best talents in all their diversity” and the action that “GRC participants should advance equal opportunity in research and develop mechanisms that encourage people from all backgrounds to pursue scholarly and scientific careers, contributing to research excellence.”

The actions stated are presented as a suite of potential activities, with the intent of providing GRC participants with the opportunity to implement those actions most suitable and beneficial for their organization and national research system. Implementation may depend not only on current policies and practices but also on national considerations.
