Gender and Safe Community Office
At Tecnológico de Monterrey, we are working together with the entire community to progress towards gender equality and to make our Institution increasingly safe and free from gender violence, enabling us all to reach our full potential.
Gender equality plan
We have developed a set of measures so that equal treatment and opportunities for women and men can form an integral part of our Institution’s academic and administrative environments.
We have joined the UN Women’s global movement HeForShe, undertaking to deploy nine strategies to contribute to gender equality and gender violence prevention.
The objective of this Committee is to assure progress towards gender equality in our Institution’s executive positions. Our Institution is led by the Presidency of Tecnológico de Monterrey and is comprised of women and men directors of our four institutions,
This Committee contributes to the execution, follow-up and enhancement of the Gender Equality Plan and is made up of academics and collaborators from all the regions of Tec de Monterrey.
This award recognizes the career, talent and contributions of women within the Tec Community, apart from making their contributions in social civic, political, economic, sports and cultural settings both heard and seen.
This initiative, promoted in conjunction with the Eugenio Garza Lagüera Entrepreneurship Institute (IEEGL), consolidates the advancement and development of women students and entrepreneurs and their enterprises in the global ecosystem.
We contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals #5– Gender Equality and #10– Reduced Inequalities.
We form part of the National Network of Institutions of Higher Education-Paths for Gender Equality, which seeks to share experiences regarding the mainstreaming and institutionalization of the gender perspective. We also participate in the core work of the Equality Observatory.
