Equal Opportunities at Goethe University

Goethe University's goal is to establish equal opportunities throughout all areas of the university and to change university structures to align with the concept of a gender- and diversity-sensitive organisational culture.

Responsible for the implementation of equal opportunities at the central level is the Equal Opportunities Office, with its Equal OpportunitiesFamily Dual Career, and Diversity & Anti-Discrimination Center.

Aimed at raising awarness, the Central Gender Equality & Diversity Action Plan 2019-2024 (German) and the Offensive "Goethe University = Opportunities" call upon all organisational units to create gender-, family- and diversity-sensitive structures and processes in their work areas.


From now on, applications can be submitted for all four program lines for Mentoring Hessen. The general Mentoring Hessen programme itself is not in English, but the ProAcademia programme includes a mixture of German and English workshops focusing on science-related topics. The selection interview can be conducted in English and it is possible to work with an English-speaking mentor.
The application deadline for ProCareer.MINT, ProCareer.Doc and ProAcademia is December 1, for ProPressur on December 15.

In its mission statement, Goethe University Frankfurt acknowledges the social responsibility of research and teaching, including the necessity to align science with the needs of as many people as possible, and to integrate different perspectives. That is why Goethe University considers the integration of gender/sex & diversity in research and teaching as a university-wide task. Gender/sex & diversity are reflected, and – where applicable – considered in the formulation of the research object and the research question, in the literature search as well as previous studies, in the planning and implementation of data collection or experiments, in the analyses of research data, in the presentation of results, and in the transfer of findings. In its 10-point paper, Goethe University includes concrete measures for the systematic consideration of gender/sex & diversity in ten identified fields of action and sets impulses for the Germany-wide discourse on the subject.
