Gender and Diversity

The University of Göttingen has a long tradition of promoting equal opportunities and is at the forefront of German research institutions in terms of fostering gender equality, diversity, and work-family-compatibility. Equal opportunities for all are not only considered a fundamental human right, but also an important precondition for realizing the full potential for excellence in research, education, and training of young scientists. The RTG strongly commits itself to provide equal opportunities and to establish a welcoming culture and a diversity-sensitive environment. We do so through gender- and diversity-sensitive recruitment, special support mechanisms for females and families, awareness training, career development measures, and networking opportunities.
