Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Plan (2020-2023)

The CRG’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Plan is the result of the Centre’s firm conviction and commitment to cooperate in the creation of a fairer, more tolerant and egalitarian society of women and men, that catalyses their advancement and development, and in which fundamental rights are respected and promoted. It is also a response to our national and international regulatory framework as concerns equality. 

The Plan features two main axes:

  • Strategic: from which the centre promotes equality, diversity and inclusion, thus promoting the following United Nations sustainable development goals:
    • Good health and well-being 
    • Gender equality 
    • Reduced inequalities 
    • Partnerships for the goals (CERCA, EU-LIFE Centres, among others) 
  • Operational: from which a set of measures that make up a coherent framework are integrated, in consonance with the reality and needs of equality, diversity and inclusion that are inherent to the centre.

Unbiased recruitment

Transparent HR policy

Effective recruitment and selection is central and crucial for the success of the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and their staff. It depends on finding people with the necessary skills, expertise and qualifications to deliver the Institute’s strategic objectives and the ability to make a positive contribution to the values and aims of the institute. CRG's Recruitment Policy is designed for the institute to aim to apply standards of best practice in the recruitment and selection of staff and that those involved in the recruitment process operate in a fair, open and equitable manner, free from bias and discrimination CRG's policy sets out the criteria and procedures for Open, Transparent and Merit-based recruitment of staff, which as a top priority of the European Research Area (ERA), is one of the pillars of the European Charter for Researchers and in particular of the Code of Conduct for the recruitment of Researchers. This also takes account of current legislation relating to employment, equality and diversity, and data protection. On the 19th of November of 2013, the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG) received the 'HR Excellence in Research' logo from the European Commission. This is a recognition of the institute's commitment in developing an HR Strategy for Researchers, designed to bring the practices and procedures in line with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter and Code). Transparency is one of the main principles that CRG follow in their recruitment processes.
