We are proud to announce the approval by CERN Council of the Management proposals in the framework of the 5-yearly review of the employment conditions at CERN. The new diversity-related financial and social conditions are effective as of 1 January 2016. Starting the work in 2014, the Diversity Office has coordinated the effort, working together with several CERN services, for the design of the new measures, listed below.

Diversity is an area of expertise of the CERN Human Resources Department, assuring that the diversity principles of appreciating differences, fostering equality and promoting collaboration are well integrated into all organisational policies, procedures and practices. Our main objective is therefore to embed these principles in HR processes themselves, which has been done since the creation of the Diversity Office.

Excellence is a non-negotiable in science, a necessary condition for a successful careers as well as the funding of research projects. Scientific excellence is the sole criterion used by the European Research Council (ERC) to award frontier research grants. However, statistics show that there are still persistent inequalities between men and women scientists in ERC funding success as well as other career outcomes.

After two years, five successful editions and plenty of positive feedback, we are happy to announce the 6th edition of our Diversity in Action workshop.

Seize the opportunity and participate in this half-day interactive workshop designed to explore the meaning and importance of diversity at CERN. Using participative multi-media methods, this workshop will provide participants with insights into the different dimensions of diversity, help to develop greater sensitivity to differences, explore ways to recognise and overcome biases and thereby strengthen our tradition of inclusiveness at CERN.

The Diversity team collaborates with the CERN High School Teacher Programme this year for the first time to engage girls’ interest in science. The 3-week residential programme in July is an opportunity for teachers around the world to update their knowledge of particle physics, associated technologies and subjects. The goal is for the teachers to take home their newly acquired knowledge to include in their teaching curriculum.
