The National Conference of Equality Bodies of Italian Universities has created a Network of the representatives of the University Committees that operate in the area of Equal Opportunities, in order to build systematic inter-university collaboration relationships on the topic of competence.

The objectives of this network are:
– Compare and disseminate analyses, proposals and experiences for enhancing gender cultures and fighting discrimination, regarding the various components who work and study in universities;
– Promote and support research and teaching on gender studies and career monitoring;
– Disseminate experiences and best practices, promote synergies between universities and carry out common initiatives, particularly in the field of training;
– Act as an active and competent interlocutor towards state and university institutions;
– Start fruitful collaborative relationships with research centres active in other countries;
– Promote the full implementation of the rules on the establishment of Equality Bodies and the adoption of the three-year plans of positive actions at Italian universities;
– Give greater propositional strength to the functions performed individually by the committees.
