Centrale Nantes has brought in new policies to promote openness and diversity over the last few years. Numerous actions have already been undertaken and many more are to come with the involvement of staff and students within the both school and as part of local and national networks in higher education and research.

In order to coordinate these actions, the school has appointed Marta Herrera, a teacher in the CLES department, as equality and diversity coordinator.

Her role will be to inform - and raise awareness amongst - the entire Centrale Nantes community with regard to the risks of discrimination and she will contribute to the preliminary assessment and development of the school's equality action plan, as well as to its follow-up.

Marta Herrera will also contribute, at the school's request, to the preparation and follow-up of consultations and negotiations for an equality agreement; and, in conjunction with the Human Resources department, to the drafting of HR documents (recruitment, mobility, allocation of bonuses and allowances, evaluation interviews, implementation of training, etc.) and their traceability, in order to guarantee workplace equality.

All these projects will be carried out in conjunction with the various departments of the school and the students.

I am proud to be able to represent Centrale Nantes through the Equality & Diversity Committee and in this new role of Equality & Diversity Coordinator. I have always been sensitive to the subject of equality, gender equality, disability and gender issues.
