(Gender in High Energy Theory)
GenHET is a permanent working group hosted by the CERN Theory Department, whose main objectives are to monitor the situation of women in High Energy Theoretical Physics, increase the awareness of gender issues in the field, improve the visibility and presence of women in decision making roles and providing networking, support and mentoring, particularly to early career researchers.
The group is open to all researchers in High Energy Theory, irrespective of their gender, across all career stages and nationalities. Interested researchers are welcome to subscribe and propose new ideas and initiatives.

GenHET aims to promote diversity in the academic environment. We need a society that unconditionally supports minorities regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, economic status, nationality, political or religious views, and disability.
We acknowledge the struggle of the African American community that today is fighting for their rights in the United States.
We condemn any form of discrimination. We will continue to propose initiatives to guide our community towards diversity and equal opportunities and to prevent all forms of discrimination, including those based on race.
