The UAB has now drawn on the multinational GMV’s technological services to make sure the Observatory Website remains a useful tool for displaying and raising awareness about the various forms of inequality and discrimination and also the actions and resources necessary to correct them. The collaboration between the company and the university dates back to 2004, when GMV took on the complete overhaul of the portal and intranet, integrating a new contents-management system for the editors.

The new website, now fully operational, incorporates the main technological tools necessary for offering a fluid, multichannel design (tablet, cell phone, desktop version, etc.). It also sports a fresh and direct design in keeping with the new image sought by the university on its main website. The features most highly valued by clients include accessibility, robustness, a clean and intuitive design plus the platform’s cybersecurity.

On this user-friendly website it is easy to find all the contents and resources that the Observatory offers the community, giving clear information on situations of campus inequality, also in comparison with the international context.
