In its appropriation directions for higher education institutions for the 2016 fiscal year, the government states that all higher education institutions must produce a plan showing how they intend to move their work on gender mainstreaming forward, so as to contribute towards achieving the goals of gender equality policy. The work on gender mainstreaming differs from, and goes beyond, an equal opportunities work based primarily on the Discrimination Act. Gender mainstreaming means that gender equality must become an integral part of regular activities at all levels of the University. Uppsala University’s Gender Mainstreaming Plan for 2017-2019 focuses on the following areas:

Skills development at managerial level
Content and design of educational programmes University-wide governance documents Recruitment and skills supply Internal allocation of resources
