Diversity and Equal Opportunities in Science and the Humanities (English)

Freitag, der 27. August

10:45-11:45 am EDT

Workshop Hall

Interactive Workshop

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 scientists 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 conditions in research. We are looking forward to a lively exchange with all participants.
