Equal opportunities and equal treatment

CEC's local work on gender equality and equal treatment, as well as the local work environment work, is conducted within the framework of CEC's gender equality and equal treatment group.

Everyone at CEC should be treated equally with regard to working conditions, development opportunities, salary and daily treatment, regardless of gender, gender-specific identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, disability, sexual orientation or age.

CEC is working against all forms of discrimination.

If you experience physical or psychosocial problems at work, you should address this with your line manager, administrative manager or your safety representative. If you find that there is discrimination in the workplace, you can also contact one of the colleagues in the CEC's group for gender equality and equal treatment. You can also seek support outside CEC by contacting The Occupational Health Centre at Lund University, or in the case of PhD students, The Doctoral Student Ombudsman.
