An important focus of our CRC1451 is to establish gender equality policies and activities to ensure equal career opportunities.

We promote an organizational culture in which individual, social, and cultural diversity is valued. We raise awareness for (in)equality especially in regard to gender equality, family friendliness, and internationalization as well as interculturality and educational equality. We intend to reach gender equality for positions that will be staffed within this initiative.

All initiatives towards gender equality are fostered by the Prorectorate for Gender Equality and Diversity, the Department for Gender & Diversity Management and the Gender Equality Officer, which is instrumental in enforcing positive selection procedures throughout the university.

We intend to fully exploit existing activities at the University of Cologne to promote career development of female scientists.

Under the following sections you will find an overview of the services provided by the CRC1451, as well as services and contact addresses within the University of Cologne that deal with gender issues, career planning and/or family support:
