The Department of Energy Sciences participates, along with the Physics Department and The Department of Earth and Ecosystem Sciences, in the project “Gender Certification on the department level”, led by the personnel consultant and project manager Kajsa Widén. General information about the project and its goals is available on the following page of the LU web site (in Swedish):
The aim of the project is to increase the knowledge on gender issues and to create conditions for a possible “gender certification” at the department. For this purpose a working team has been appointed that is supposed to spread information about the project within the department and to, together with the project manager, discuss, initiate and implement various activities. The gender certification group (the working team) meet regularly since the beginning of 2010. At several of these meetings the project manager also takes part.
We have a bookshelf in the lunch room on the fourth floor (in the M building) where one can find information and literature regarding gender and equality. Reading suggestions can also be found at LTH’s web sites (in Swedish):
