Equal opportunities in the SFB 833

Equal Opportunities

The SFB 833 has an active policy of supporting equal opportunities. The particular emphases so far have been on career development for female colleagues and support for colleagues with family responsibilities.

Support for compatibility of career and family

  • Children's room: the SFB has equipped a room to make it suitable for small children.
  • Child care: the SFB provides a child minding service for colleagues outside normal nursery hours
  • Policy of providing child care facilities at academic events arranged by the SFB
  • Support for colleagues with responsibilities in their families through additional research assistants (for experiments, literature research, corrections, etc.)

Career development for female colleagues

  • The SFB has organized seminars in career-relevant skills for groups of colleagues (presentation techniques, communication skills, project management, etc.)
  • Grants and subsidies are available for steps to fulfil individual career development requirements, for instance courses offered by the LaKoG or the DHV (further training, coaching, career planning, mentoring programmes)

Funds and advice are available. Please contact the equal opportunities representative for further information.
