The gender and diversity consulting of the equal opportunities office provides advice and services  and addresses the faculties, coordinated programmes and individual researchers. The faculties are supported by advice and information for the conception and organization of GEDAP. Teaching personnel are offered individual advice on diversity-related questions. The consulting on proposals aims at the integration of equal opportunities in research proposals, e.g. in DFG-funded coordinated research centres and research training groups. In order to organize measures for equal opportunities in coordinated programmes, they fund a joint coordinator position, which is located in the equal opportunities office.

A new instrument to promote equality within faculties is the »Gender Equality & Diversity Action Plan« – abbreviated GEDAP. Drawing upon gender statistics and reporting guidelines, faculties analyze their own respective level of equality attainment every other year.

Proposal

Proposal

The DFG emphasises the importance of a successful equal opportunities strategy, because considering gender and diversity aspects represents an essential element of high quality research, therefore creating added value. Thus, for example, as part of a DFG priority programme or within a DFG research unit, one could apply for 15,000 Euros annually for promoting equal opportunities, in DFG collaborative research centres even up to 30,000 Euros annually. In LOEWE projects and EU research programmes, attention to gender issues is also expected.

Coordinated Programmes

The equal opportunities goals of the DFG focus on career advancement for women up to a leading position as well as on family-friendly workplaces in research. There is a close cooperation between the DFG-funded coordinated programmes at Goethe-University and the Equal Opportunities Office to develop concepts for gender equality in research proposals and during scientific assessment as well as in organizing measures and activities in collaborative research centres and research training groups.
