Gender Equality and Diversity

Combining Work, Studies and Family Life

Advisory Services

  • Are you an academic associate and a father who wishes to take on responsibility in both areas of life but your request to reduce your working hours has been rejected? What should you do?
  • Are you a supervisor? Do you want to know how you can best support your staff who have parental duties?

The Office for Gender Equality and Diversity advises all members of the University community on effectively combining studies and careers with family life. We also provide information and advice on the laws, policies, and university processes related to discrimination based on family duties. 

Our advisory services are confidential and free of charge.

Consultations can be carried out in German or English. Please contact us for an appointment.
