In gender equality matters please contact the Gender Equality Comittee or the women’s representatives.
Gender Equality Committee
The Gender Equality Committee works in accordance with the needs of both sexes and aims at furthering equal opportunities regarding the awarding of scholarships, staffing policies and organisational hierarchies by means of gender mainstreaming.
The number of female and male doctoral students, scholarship holders and staff members should be balanced. However, key criteria for the awarding of scholarships and posts should be the applicant’s academic and personal profile. Accordingly, the Gender Equality Committee’s focus lies on gender-sensitive personnel development in order to sustainably support the GCSC and GGK’s further advancing. You can find further information on the GEC and its tasks in our organisational structure.

Prof. Dr. Ingo Berensmeyer, Prof. Dr. Verena Dolle, Dr. Christine Schwanecke, Dr. Markus Späth, Gero Guttzeit and Katharina Zilles.
