Ana Belen Amil
I am a clinical psychologist graduated at the University of Buenos Aires, and came to CEU in 2015 to pursue an Erasmus Mundus 2-year MA degree in Women's and Gender Studies (GEMMA) after encountering many gender-related challenges in my psychological practice. My MA thesis consists of a critical approach to the field of sexology from a gender perspective, and you are welcome to have a look at it here.
In 2017-2018, I worked at Human RightS Initiative (HRSI) at CEU as a Project Manager, and I am currently the Gender Equality Officer for the EU-funded SUPERA Project (Supporting the Promotion of Equality in Research and Academia) in this University. My main role is to coordinate the design, implementation and monitoring of CEU's first Gender Equality Plan. I also take an active part in another EU-funded project, GE Academy, aimed at developing and implementing a high-quality capacity-building programme on gender equality in research, innovation and higher education.
Besides my work at CEU, I am a strong advocate for LGBTQI*/SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) rights and SRHR (Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights). I am a contributor for the recently published Integrative Handbook for the Depatologization of Trans Identities (in Spanish) with a chapter titled "The Heterosexual Regime: what is it, when was it invented, and why is it killing us".
