Equal Opportunities Office
Goethe University's goal is to establish equal opportunities throughout all areas of the university and to change university structures in the sense of a gender- and diversity-sensitive organizational culture. Responsible for the implementation of equal opportunities at the central level is the Equal Opportunities Office with its work areas Equal Opportunities, Family & Dual Career, and Diversity & Antidiscrimination. With the Equal Opportunities Action Plan 2019-2024 (german) and the Offensive "Goethe University = Opportunities" aimed at raising awareness, all organizational units are called upon to create gender-, family- and diversity-sensitive structures and processes in their work areas.
