Committee for equal opportunities and welfare
The Committee for equal opportunities and welfare (“Comitato Unico di Garanzia” - CUG) is a joint body combining the competences of the former Committee on Equal Opportunities and the Joint Anti-Mobbing Committee. The CUG of the Scuola Normale Superiore (SNS) has been established by General Secretary Decree n. 167 on March 12th 2015.
The CUG is a joint body composed of three academic representatives and three representatives of the technical and administrative staff, each of which has an alternate representative. The alternate representatives participate actively in the activities of the CUG.

It develops and carries out actions aimed at ensuring and promoting equal opportunities and welfare in the workplace, overcoming all forms of discrimination based on race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or religion.

- promote actions for the equal treatment of workers and foster the dissemination of a culture of equal opportunities in the workplace, also in coordination with initiatives and tools that the Scuola may adopt;
- develop actions and projects aimed at promoting welfare in the workplace, such as preparing surveys and gathering information about the work environment, in order to overcome all forms of discrimination, decrease work-related stress and prevent any form of harassment and mobbing;
- provide non-binding opinions on staff training programs, on plans for work-schedule flexibility, and on interventions for work-life conciliation;
- monitor and assess the results of the aforementioned actions, of good practices in the field of equal opportunities, and of the policies promoting well-being at work, also through proposals to the bodies responsible for training plans.
