Equal Oppor­tu­ni­ties

Equal opportunities and career promotion in the CRC

Equal opportunities for women and men and career support for early career researchers at all qualification levels is a central concern of the CRC. To this end, the CRC has developed comprehensive measures for equal opportunities, career promotion and development, and the compatibility of family and science. In addition to the services offered by the Women Career Service, the House of Young Talents and the Family Service Office of the University of Siegen, we regularly offer special events, workshops and/or coaching tailored to the needs of CRC employees. We plan this offer on the basis of regular needs assessments and evaluations. Suggestions are always welcome! Once a year, the Round Table "Young Scientists" takes place, which serves, among other things, as an exchange between speakers and early career researchers on measures in the area of career promotion and equal opportunities.

Current and past events can be found here: sfb1472.uni-siegen.de/en/events.
