TecnoCampus, as an entity committed to society and the region, promotes equal opportunities between men and women in order to eradicate any type of sexist discrimination and, in this sense, incorporates the gender perspective in a transversal way in all areas of work, study, teaching and research.
In the last decade, a broad regulatory framework on equality has been developed that requires the adoption of different measures to advance the achievement of effective equality between women and men. Despite the progressive incorporation of women into universities, as students, as teachers, as researchers, and as administration and service staff, gender biases survive.
Furthermore, society also imposes regulatory standards on the identity and expression of gender as well as on sexuality, which also generate specific forms of discrimination and violence against people in the LGBTI community. Thus, in the fight against gender inequality and gender-based violence, universities must add the fight against any expression of LGBTIphobia, in order to make effective the principles of non-discrimination and respect and to ensure that the university is a space where everyone can live and develop in full freedom.

The Equality Commission is the advisory and participation body whose main objective is to advise and be consulted on the elaboration, implementation and evaluation of the Equality Plan, as well as the promotion of gender mainstreaming in the set of university policy and awareness-raising activities on equality between women and men.
The Equality Commission is made up of people representing different areas of the university community.
The Technical Commission on sexual harassment and harassment on the grounds of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression is permanent and is responsible for the application of the procedure of technical and specialized performance collected in the Protocol to prevent and resolve conflicts over gender-based violence, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, as well as the monitoring of measures.
Composition of the Technical Commission:
In 2011, the Equality Plan was approved, which defined the gender policy of TecnoCampus and which has served to guide the line of work to be followed in subsequent years in terms of equality and non-discrimination on the grounds of gender or sexual identity.
The II TecnoCampus Equality Plan is currently in force, which contains the Protocol to prevent and resolve conflicts in matters of gender-based violence, homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. Its essential purpose is to incorporate an integrated approach to the promotion of equal opportunities between women and men throughout university activity.
The implementation of this Equality Plan and the Protocol for Equality does not only mean a mere formal compliance with current regulations, but also involves assuming with conviction the equality of women and men as a priority and a governing principle of the University.
The II Equality Plan was approved on December 27, 2019 by resolution of the General Directorate 96/2019.
The protocol for preventing and resolving conflicts in matters of gender-based violence, homophobia, bi-phobia and transphobia aims to establish the essential criteria, of a minimum nature, for managing behaviours perceived as discriminatory, violent or sexual harassment, on the grounds of sex or by reason of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression within the scope of direction and organisation of the administrative or academic unit of affiliation of the person or persons who are the subject, and in the exercise of their professional or educational activity or as a consequence thereof.
The Protocol for the Prevention and Resolution of Conflicts on Gender-Based Violence, Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia is included as an annex to the II TechnoCampus Equality Plan.
