Equality

2021_01_18_Banner_Flyer_GB

Goethe University is strongly committed to implementing gender equality. Its basic equality measures are set out in the Central Gender Equality and Diversity Action Plan 2019-2024 (german) and in the Institutional Strategy within the framework of the Federal and State Program for Women Professors III. It is certified by the Total Equality Award and actively works to ensure the implementation of the DFG's research-oriented equality standards. The Equal Opportunities Office offers a variety of services to attract women where they are still underrepresented and to support them on their various career paths. It advises the faculties, divisions and collaborative research projects on successful structural, cultural and personnel measures for equal opportunity and helps all university members to work in a gender- and diversity-conscious manner.

Equality & Diversity Policies at Faculty and Central Institutions

In coordination with the Equal Opportunities Officer, the Faculty Equal Opportunities Officers work towards the implementation of equality in their respective areas. They are elected by the women of the respective faculty or central unit for a term of office of two years and, on behalf of the Equal Opportunities Officer, perform tasks and exercise participation rights, for example in committee work, appointment and recruitment procedures.

Central to attracting women to both careers in and leadership positions is the design of recruitment and hiring processes and appointment procedures.

In planning cycles of approximately two-year, the faculties analyze the gender equality situations in their areas and plan new measures on gender equality and diversity. They also document and evaluate the implementation of measures that are already underway or have been completed. The planning and reporting tools developed by Gender & Diversity Controlling provide a structure for this. In addition, the faculties are supported by the Equal Opportunities Office in the various phases of the planning process.

Gender & Diversity Consulting is a consultancy and service offered by the Equal Opportunities Office. These services are geared toward deaneries and managers as well as all members of faculty or central institutions with the purpose of supporting them in the conception and implementation of targeted gender equality measures, as well as activities to promote diversity and anti-discrimination.

Gender Equality Monitoring

Gender Equality monitoring is indispensable in order to be able to speak about equality in an informed way at the university and to make data-based decisions.

This applies to both the planning and evaluation of structural measures and funding activities: Where is there progress, where is there stagnation? How does this compare to universities nationwide? Where can we do better?
