Offensive "Goethe University =Opportunities"
In 2017, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main launched a new offensive: "Goethe University =Opportunities". In this way, Goethe University is providing further impetus to achieve lived diversity and equal opportunities and thus also to increase the quality of research and teaching. The key points of the "Goethe University =Opportunities" offensive were adopted by the Senate in summer 2016 in a strategy paper entitled "Potential for better research and academia".
The heart of the offensive is the implementation of the "Central Gender Equality & Diversity Action Plan 2019-2024" (german version), which was developed in 2016/17 and published after its adoption in 2019. What is new about this action plan is that gender equality measures and diversity policies are closely interrelated. The university wants to meet the current social and political challenges through an intersectional approach and counter inequalities of opportunity even more decisively. This includes raising awareness of discrimination among all university members. Through brochures, films, and other media, the university will provide more information about equality and diversity policies. The goal is to engage university members and affiliates in an active commitment to equal opportunity and to place respectful interaction at the center of an appreciative campus culture.
