First Phase of a Gender Equality Re-Audit at SCI MUNI: Individual and Group Interviews Successfully Conducted

In May 2024, we launched an analytical phase of the project "Introducing a Flexible Working Culture and a Support System for Parents on Maternity and Parental Leave into the Working Environment of the MU Faculty of Science" as part of the Employment Plus Operational Programme (OPZ+). This phase includes a gender equality audit, featuring structured individual and group interviews with our employees, led by an auditor.

As part of the gender equality re-audit at the Faculty of Science, MU, a series of sixteen meetings took place in May 2024, involving nearly fifty Faculty employees. The interviews, conducted by expert and consultant Kateřina Kaňoková, were held in both individual and group formats, focusing on equal opportunities at the Faculty.

Participants were selected from an anonymized list of employees to represent all hierarchical and professional levels of the Faculty. The selection process adhered to the government methodology of the Standard Gender Audit.

In addition to qualitative analysis through interviews, the re-audit also includes extensive quantitative data analysis. This data pertains to the state of equal opportunities from a gender perspective and will enable a comparison with the situation in 2021, when the first gender equality audit was conducted at the Faculty during covid restrictions.

The final audit report and related recommendations will be one of the outputs of the analytical phase of the OPZ+ project titled " Introducing a Flexible Working Culture and a Support System for Parents on Maternity and Parental Leave into the Working Environment of the MU Faculty of Science". The project is co-financed by the European Union through the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs of the Czech Republic.

The gender equality audit is coordinated by the Faculty's HR Award Office. The Faculty of Science is also actively involved in the development of the university's Gender Equality Plan (GEP) within a dedicated working group at MU.
