Gender & Family

A key concern at both the international and national level is the gender inequality that is still prevalent, especially at the higher career levels in research. Picking up this topic the DFG has produced a film that summarizes the portion of women in science in Germany as well as in international comparison. You can watch the film here.

The University of Cologne has been implementing a strong gender equality scheme aimed to ensure equal employment opportunities as well as to promote work/life balance. The problem of family friendly working conditions are closely related to that. Female and male researchers in the experimental sciences face particular difficulties if they have children. It is therefore essential to offer reliable and affordable day care.

Under the following section you will find an overview of the services provided by the SFB, as well as services and contact addresses within the University that deal with gender issues, career planning and/or family support.
