Diversity and Equal Opportunities Committee

The Diversity and Equal Opportunities Committee (DEOC) - former Gender Advisory Committee (GAC) - is an advisory body to the Project Coordination Office (PCO) and Directorate (DIR) of the Human Brain Project (HBP). The Diversity and Equal Opportunities Committee is composed of HBP board members, leaders, scientist, technologists or managers engaged in the work for the HBP from different domains. Each board and workpackage appoints at least one, preferable two members (ideally of different genders) for the DEOC, who are chosen for their unique engagement and willingness to contribute. The Diversity and Equal Opportunities Committee is providing advice and feedback on the Gender Action Plan (GAP) of the HBP and on activities planned to improve equality in their respective areas of responsibility.

The former GAC decided to be renamed to "Diversity and Equal Opportunities Committee (DEOC)" to emphasize intersectionality and inclusiveness as key principles to be considered.
