Equal Opportunities Officer

The Equality Representative and her team support the Presidium of the UAS Kiel in achieving its gender equality policy according to the Higher Education Act. The major objective is the actual implementation of equal gender opportunities at all levels.

Working on contemporary gender equality requires a focus on historic developments and culturally established inequities between men and women. A strengthening of women in science at all qualification levels constitutes one of the main areas of the university’s gender equality work. At the same time, the university should be thinking beyond the binary gender hierarchy, meeting the demands of gender diversity. Besides gender equality, each university member, whether student, employee or teacher, should obtain equal access to knowledge acquisition and production regardless of their gender.
