This Equality Manifesto published in December 2020 transmits our institutional commitment with equality. This manifesto pursues eradicating harassment and violence, manifesting our commitment to equality at the workplace and in our everyday lives.
The objective of this manifesto is to build a fairer and more equitable working environment within the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3), knowing that without gender justice and equality, overall social justice cannot be achieved. Since 2019, we have undertaken a participatory process for co-producing an Equality Plan covering the period of 2020-2023. At the beginning of 2020, our equality plan was presented to all members of BC3 and during the next months the Equality Commission, with the support of the directorate of BC3 and an external consultant developed the prevention and action protocol against sexual harassment, gender-based harassment or harassment based on gender identity or sexual orientation. Following this Protocol, we now present this Manifesto highlighting our two main lines of action: 1. Eradicating Harassment and Violence and 2. Manifesting our Commitment to Equality at the workplace and in our everyday lives
