Diversity and equal opportunities in science and the humanities: strategies and actions of funding and research performing institutions

The promotion of gender equality, diversity, and inclusion within science and the humanities is the goal of all funding and research institutions in Germany. In order to bring the potential of all scien-tists and academics into the research system, and to realise (gender) justice incrementally, the funding and research institutions have and are developing diversity strategies, set up gender-equality programmes and have analysed their portfolio with regard to possible structural obstacles to reduce barriers and increase diversity. The German Research Foundation, the Leibniz Association, the Helmholtz Association, the Fraunhofer Society and the Max Planck Society will present their initiatives and activities related to equal opportunities, diversity, and family-friendly framing condi-tions in research. We are looking forward to a lively exchange with all participants.
