Equality Focus Group


The aim of the Equality Focus Group is to improve and highlight unequal situations for all individuals in academia at Karolinska Institutet.


Our goals will be achieved by striving for greater transparency in academia, highlighting scientific role models from all avenues of science, pursuing a mentorship program for junior and established researchers, encouraging the employment of a qualified equality researcher, and educating and informing researchers and research leaders on discrimination, issues and solutions.
