Gender equality and familiy-friendly policies

Both participating universities regard achieving equality of women and men in research and society as one of the major goals in higher education policy. Gender equality is linked to the broader goal of creating a diverse workplace in terms of gender, social, and cultural background. Both universities aim to remove any direct or indirect discrimination of women and strive to make full use of women’s skills in the fields of teaching, research, and administration. Therefore, we put special emphasis on the support of female researchers from their doctorate to their appointment to a professorship. We promote diversity and regard it as a source of innovation. In this context, we view a family-friendly work environment as crucial to the reconciliation of academic work, professional life and family responsibilities.
