In Faculty 15 there is not a single Equal Opportunities Officer, but a team of different status groups that together form the Equal Opportunities Council; among them professors, academic staff, technical-administrative staff and students. The women's representation elects the Equal Opportunities Council for a period of two years.
Since the preservation and support of gender equality is an important concern of the department, it was decided at the end of 2010 to establish in the Dean's Office, in addition to the Women's Council of the time (Equal Opportunities Council), a fixed authority for gender equality for the Vice Dean.
The Equal Opportunities Council represents the interests of the individual status groups and ensures equal opportunities in recruitment and appointment procedures. The proportion of women on the career ladder continues to decline. It is therefore important to promote equal opportunities for women. In addition, the Equal Opportunities Council supports women in reconciling family life and studies or career. It also offers assistance in conflict resolution and sexual harassment through training courses and at the workplace.
The Equal Opportunities Council is happy to support the vocational qualification of women.
