Equal Opportunities Officer

The Equal Opportunities Officer and the Equal Opportunities Committee advise and support the university with respect to the equal opportunities policy which is defined in the state-wide Equal Opportunities Law for NRW.

The university is thus committed to creating equality of opportunity for men and women. Areas of responsibility include, for example:

  • Development of projects on themes relating to equality of opportunity
  • Accompanying the appointment of personnel and the appeals procedure
  • Offering support with measures aimed at helping people to combine family and profession (or degree).
  • Support of gender-related research e.g. through the awarding of scholarships
  • Presentation of the series of events "La Cité des Dames"

The central Equal Opportunities Officer and those appointed for the specialist areas, as well as the members of the Equal Opportunities Committee, are all available to answer any questions on themes relating to equality of opportunity. The Equal Opportunities Officers are among the persons who you can turn to in confidence, if you feel that you are being exposed to sexual harassment or any form of abuse of power or if you observe such things in your environment.
