Committee for Equal Opportunities, Employee Wellbeing and Non-Discrimination at Work - CUG
Established by Law no. 183/2010, the CUG is a special university body which deals with issues relating to equal opportunities, the employees’ wellbeing and non-discrimination in the workplace. The CUG replaces and combines the functions of the former Equal Opportunities Committee and the Joint Committee against Mobbing.
- to propose actions and projects aimed to ensure that equal opportunities are fully implemented for those who work and study at the University, and promote a culture of equality;
- to ensure that there is no moral or physical violence, as well as direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, disability, age, religion, language and any other related aspects;
- to promote work-life balance initiatives;
- to propose actions and projects aimed at promoting employee wellbeing.
The CUG has advisory and monitoring functions, with the aim of promoting a culture of equality, improving employee wellbeing, and tackling discrimination. The CUG, which works in collaboration with the Confidential Counsellor
, currently runs a Counselling service
The University has appointed a Confidential Counsellor to prevent, manage and help solving any reported cases of bullying, sexual harassment, discrimination and work distress that may occur at the University.
The counselling and psychological support services are among the tools we use in order to ensure the mental, physical and social wellbeing of our staff. This service is intended for employees who are experiencing distress, anxiety and stress, which can put at risk their personal and working health, inevitably affecting the entire organisation.
This service is for academic and technical/administrative staff. Further information can be found in the "Servizi > Agevolazioni e tutele" section on MyUnivr
