IRIF has taken up gender equality issues in 2019, particularly in view of the relatively low proportion of women among the laboratory's members. The laboratory has decided to create a commission in the fall of 2019, and to launch several communication and support initiatives in order to sustain gender equality within the laboratory and its scientific community.

Test your knowledge! Parity quizz IRIF



The aim of the IRIF's gender equality commission is to develop awareness, alert, communication and training actions. Its work focuses on a number of areas: mentoring, harassment issues, organization of Girls Only meetings, collection of gendered statistics, promotion of computer science among girls in secondary education, support for girls in computer science courses in higher education (in particular via Master's scholarships), the fight against sexism and harassment, and action on selection committees.
