ARACIS (Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education) organised the final TARGET event on 15 December 2021. The objective was to present the results achieved by the project, including the Gender Equality Plan (GEP), and further discuss sustainability strategies and cooperation with Romanian universities on GEPs.
ARACIS gender expert Alina Tăriceanu explained the results achieved by the project. Thanks to its participation in TARGET, ARACIS adopted its first GEP and started to promote gender equality issues in Romanian Universities.
Participants in the workshop highlighted the new EU Horizon Europe GEP eligibility criterion, sharing advice and insight. The discussion, also involving representatives of the Romanian Universities, focused on the TARGET approach on gender equality and the importance of introducing a gender perspective in education and research. It was highlighted how the initiative of an accreditation agency can help trigger change in universities and society at large, and also how keeping the attention high and offering stimulus for reflection can be considered an effort towards increasing gender awareness.
