As an employer, NUPI has a duty to work actively, purposefully and systematically to ensure gender equality and prevent discrimination.

In addition to meeting the legal requirements, it is important and right to have in place an employer policy that enables us to access the most competent employees, brings out the best in the institute’s managers and employees and lays the framework for equal opportunities for employees.

NUPI has a head of equality and diversity who, with support from the management team and the Working Environment Committee, is responsible for following up goals and measures as well as updating the action plan every two years.

The plan covers the following areas: organisation and management, research and professional development, and recruitment and development.
