The Faculty of Sociology understands the equality of women* and men* in all areas and status groups as one of its central development goals. It emphatically supports and sustainably implements the equality measures of Bielefeld University Equality is understood to mean that measures are taken to support equal opportunities and equal rights for the sexes. This can be achieved by reducing the structural disadvantages of women*, reducing inequality in the allocation of jobs and insuring a respectful conduct on all levels of staff.
The Equal Opportunities Commission is committed to the equal participation of all women* and men* at all levels of the faculty. Therefore we provide recommendations for actions, accompany appointment procedures and serve as a point of contact for all questions relating to equality, as well as for suggestions, complaints and the report of personal or structural experiences of discrimination.
A special topic for us is the implementation of gender-sensitive language. You can find more information here.
