Equal opportunities and diversity


The Georg-August-Universität Göttingen has the self-set goal of providing equal opportunities and protection against discrimination for all its employees and associates regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, religion and belief, disability and chronic illness, ethnic and social origin and regardless of their different background experiences, household / family constellations and life situations. The decentralized Equal Opportunity Team of the Faculty of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology consists of six equal opportunity officers, representing all status groups.


The most important tasks of the Equal Opportunity Officers are:

  • Participation in committees (eg. faculty council, central equality council)
  • Participation in personnel decisions (appointment and appointment process)
  • Information and advice on the compatibility of family and work or studies
  • Support and implementation of measures and projects to promote the equality plans
  • Consultation and moderation in conflict situations


  • Equal Opportunity Officers of the Faculty
