Gender equality policy is based on the assumption of an equal level of representation of women and men in high positions. The WSB University adheres to the principles of gender equality both in decision-making and managerial positions in the area of administration, as well as in scientific and management boards, recruitment committees and promotion committees. Taking into account the structure of employment in the organizational culture, attention should be paid to the high or very high rate of women's representation in administrative positions and the very high rate of women's representation in the group of people employed in key managerial positions.
As part of the study of the impact on scientific and research development resulting from the share of positions occupied by women in the WSB University, an analysis was carried out taking into account the percentage of employment, remuneration, as well as the role in research and development projects, research and service works and scientific publications. No employed or working person has so far declared any other affiliation due to gender.
As part of the employment analysis, a 64 percent share of women in employment broken down by gender was found. According to the current situation on the labor market, the structure of employment is polarized in groups of positions: division into groups of administrative employees and employees in research and teaching positions. In the case of work in administrative positions, the share of women is 85 percent, while in the case of research and teaching positions, the share of women is only 37 percent. The analysis of the participation of women in research and teaching teams showed a greater participation of men in the field of technical sciences, security sciences, and management and quality sciences. This proportion is equal in the discipline of pedagogy and in the discipline of health sciences.
An analysis of the percentage share of gender in positions affecting the development of scientific and research teams was also carried out: the Rector's Office, Members of the Senate, Deans, Heads of Departments and participation in Scientific Discipline Councils. The analysis of employment in the highest decision-making positions showed a very high share of women. Her Magnificence Rector of the WSB University is also a woman — Assoc. Prof. Zdzisława Dacko-Pikiewicz, PhD. The Rector's Office consists of three women and two men, meeting the principles of equality in such a key area. The Senate is represented fully proportionally by gender (50-50%). Almost 64% of Vice-Deans and Coordinators of key units and branches of the University are women.
Every year WSB University holds numerous events both on campus and outside of it in order to adhere to the gender equality plan.
