Living equal opportunity

Achieving equal opportunity among men and women in the workplace is an ambitious goal that we have yet to reach . Often, male characteristics, life situations and needs are regarded as the norm.

The university is committed to re-evaluating these norms and has pledged to implement suitable measures for promoting equal opportunity among men and women. These are laid out in its Code of Practice on Gender Equality. By adopting a clearly defined equal opportunity strategy, we are seeking to continually improve the situation of women.

One building block for achieving fairness and gender equality is the university’s pledge to use gender-equitable language.

Enabling our staff to balance work with family life is another important pillar of our equal opportunity strategy.

The university has appointed two contact persons to turn to in case of discrimination or sexual violence in the workplace .
