The Female Advancement Plan (FAP) is laid down in the WU’s Statutes and is set out in Annex 4.

The objective of the FAP is to foster equality between women and men at WU. Among others, the FAP lays down the EOC’s rights and obligations as well as measures and institutions (to be) in place for furthering the advancement of women.

The Senate resolves the FAP based on the proposal submitted by the EOC for a period of three years. The FAP is subject to annual evaluation and may be modified, where necessary, in line with pre-defined objectives. This evaluation and potential modifications occur on the proposal of the EOC.
