Gender Advisory Committee -
Diversity and Equal Opportunities

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

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