The Department of Philosophy of Central European University is highly conscious of issues like gender bias, the representation of women in philosophy events, caregivers’ needs, and related ones. The department has been making an effort to address these issues. With this in mind, the department has decided to subscribe to the British Philosophical Association and the Society of Women in Philosophy’s Good Practice Scheme. Apart from serving to amplify and systematise already existing practices, this will also serve as a statement about the importance the department ascribes to these practices and its commitment to them.
The department will address all these issues according to the guidelines of the relevant CEU policies and the BPA/SWIP Good Practice Scheme documents. Please see links below.
The departmental Good Practice Scheme overseer is Katalin Farkas. The implementation of the scheme will also be coordinated with MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) representatives. Members of the department are asked to contact the Head of Department or the overseer with any suggestions on improvements or implementation of the scheme.
