Equality in Everyday Faculty Life - A Moderated Dialogue

The Equal Opportunities Commission of the Faculty of Sociology (GleiKo) has been inviting you to a moderated dialogue on equality practices in everyday faculty since 2018. This idea arose against the background of our experience in appointment committees. There it becomes particularly clear that there is a wide range of ideas about what equality is or (should not) be and that it means different things for the individual professors in our faculty, their thoughts and actions on the constitutional goal of equality for women* and men* to orientate. Furthermore, we have the impression that the orientation of all faculty members towards equal opportunities is a necessary condition for their realization. Even the most active GleiKo can ultimately - despite their legal possibilities - can only be successful with the cooperation of all stakeholders in the faculty.

In this sense, gender equality in science is a collective task.
