Standing Up for Equality


In compliance with the University of Alicante's action to carry out awareness campaigns aimed at fighting gender stereotypes when it comes to choose university studies and within the 2nd Plan for Equal Opportunities for Women and Men, the Office of the Vice President for Students launches the programme Stanp Up for EqUAlity which aims to promote equality between women and men at secondary education centres in the province of Alicante.
This programme is directly related to three initiatives to mainstream gender equality policies as well as the gender perspective in secondary education centres: 


In order to eliminate stereotypes linked to the choice of traditionally male-oriented studies and professions, GigabytGirl Campus is an initiative created for Alicante high school female students to participate in a pilot project inspired by similar campaigns carried out by tech giants such as Google or Microsoft.
The actUA Project is intended to inform, raise awareness and prevent harassment based on sexual orientation and gender violence in the university community, society in Alicante and, especially in lower and upper secondary centres and vocational centres in Alicante. 
Women for Science, Women for Sure is our project to show the contribution of female scientists to social development.
