Gender equality and equal opportunities at the LTV faculty

Last changed: 18 August 2022

The Faculty of Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science (LTV) strives for gender equality and equal opportunities for all students and staff.

Gender equality and equal opportunities is to be achieved by gender mainstreaming and in accordance with the Discrimination Act's requirements for preventive active measures. This applies to the faculty as well as SLU as a whole.

All students and staff should have the same rights and obligations regardless of the seven grounds of discrimination in the Discrimination Act:

  • sex
  • transgender identity or expression
  • ethnicity   
  • religion or other belief
  • disability
  • sexual orientation
  • age

Have you been the victim of discrimination, harassment or sexual harassment?

Here you can find information on how to proceed, as well as links to SLU guidelines in case of suspected harassment of students and staff.

Are you a manager and in need of support?

All faculties have an equal opportunities administrative officer employed. The equal opportunities officer is to provide support to managers regarding both strategic and operational measures in order to achieve gender equality and equal opportunities.

Contact information for the LTV faculty's Equal Conditions Officer can be found at the bottom of this page.

SLU's general web pages and documents regarding gender equality and equal opportunities

Active measures is the concept for the systematic and preventive work that the Discrimination Act requires. Departments can coordinate the active measures work with their systematic work environment work.

Gender mainstreaming is a strategy for achieving Sweden's gender equality policy goals and means that gender equality must be taken into account in all processes and decisions. The government has assigned SLU and all other Swedish higher education institutions a mission to work for increased gender equality through gender mainstreaming.
