Academia & Diversity

Academia is a group that is diverse in itself. Here, too, we find structural and individual disadvantages and discrimination, and by reflecting on this diversity we can shape academic career paths in a way that is more productive and equitable for all. While the disadvantage and underrepresentation of women in academia has been examined and evidenced in many studies over the past 30 years and regularly monitored, in-depth analyses of other dimensions of diversity have not been conducted in Germany until recently. Goethe University is therefore only now for the first time in the process of developing a diversity concept explicitly for academia.
