Awareness raising through reflection

To raise awareness towards diversity and anti-discrimination, interdisciplinary and subject-related event formats as well as consulting and counselling services are conceptualised and implemented. These aim to sharpen university members’ awareness towards gender and diversity aspects, to reflect on their handling of heterogeneity and contribute to shaping a learning, working and research environment at Goethe University that is diversity-sensitive and critical of discrimination.

This reflection is accompanied by consulting services for the faculties and the departments in central administration in order to ensure an appropriate handling of diversity and the development and implementation of suitable measures on this basis. A further component is individual consulting on diversity-related issues, e.g. for employees in teaching and studies, teaching staff, staff with counselling/consulting tasks, and supervisors. In addition, university-wide public relations work fosters awareness raising towards diversity and anti-discrimination. Brochures and handouts are published, and events are organised across target groups, such as the annual “Diversity Day”.
