Equality, diversity and inclusion at the School of Electrical Engineering
Aalto University aims to offer everyone an equal operating environment in which employees and students representing different genders, positions and backgrounds are treated equally. The joint objective is to have a good studying and working atmosphere prevail at the university. In its own part, equality work promotes the sustainable social and cultural development of Aalto University.
The Aalto University Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Plan (EDI plan) supports the continuous promotion of equality and inclusion at the Aalto University. The EDI plan is based on the strategy and values of the university. The EDI Committee of Aalto University supports the planning, implementation and monitoring of Aalto University’s values and equality. Development Manager of the school represents School of Electrical Engineering in the committee.
To support the fulfilment and follow-up of the objectives of the EDI plan, the EDI Committee prepares a separate implementation plan that is revised on an annual basis. The schools and joint units prepare their own practical action plans based on the university's EDI plan.
