Internal Committee (POSH) 

To work without harassment is every individual's fundamental right. IISER Pune therefore believes in and practices a “ZERO TOLERANCE” and “GENDER EQUALITY” policy. Gender equality is achieved when women and men enjoy the same rights and opportunities across all sectors of society, including economic participation and decision-making, and when the different behaviors, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favored.

The INTERNAL COMMITTEE of IISER Pune [a statutory body constituted as per the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013] has been constituted in compliance with directives of the Supreme Court of India. Its objectives are to:
- uphold the dignity of women
- to facilitate a gender-sensitive and congenial working environment free of gender-specific discrimination or sexual harassment
- ensure that victims and witnesses are not victimised or discriminated against because of lodging such complaints
- take proactive measures to educate the IISER Pune community about gender-sensitivity
