  • Hold women's and men's meetings as needed

Furthermore, the equal opportunity officers advocate for:

  • the anchoring of gender studies in teaching and research
  • eine Gleichstellungsrichtlinie des Institut für Politikwissenschaft, die sich in den Förderplan der Universität einreiht
  • lectures on gender studies, sexual harassment at universities/public spaces, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and on the situation of women at universities are also organized at irregular intervals
