CERCA launches a new micro-learning site and its first course 'From microaggressions to harassment. Women in scientific research.'

On the occasion of Nov 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against WomenI-CERCA launched a micro-learning site and the first micro-course to join this initiative and raise awareness among the CERCA centres community.

This course is in line with one of the strategic goals on ‘Prevention of sexual and gender-based harassment’ of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Plan of the CRG, and highlights the commitment of our institute to promote work relations based on freedom, dignity and respect among people.

The course is entitled “From microaggressions to harassment. Women in scientific research.” It will be available on the platform until Jan 8, 2021, and it is exclusively addressed to staff of CERCA centres. This micro-course aims at reflecting and providing us with tools to identify male violence, particularly in the field of research institutes. Thanks to the contents of this course, you will be able to discover simple ways to take the first steps, as well as to know the legal instruments available.

The site and the contents are in three languages (Catalan, Spanish and English), and are part of the CERCA Programme on Gender Equality.

The same platform will soon offer other courses about topics related to gender balance issues. Stay tuned!
