EGERA pursues both an ambitious and pragmatical objective by tackling the opacity of recruitment and appraisal procedures, gender bias in evaluation and practices which contribute to slow down women's careers.

Actions to be undertaken by respective partners shall to be also understood as a whole EGERA shall communicate a spirit of innovation, transparency and openness EGERA will constitute a label of equality, fairness and excellence.
