Collection of ideas for equality at CGF: Join in!

How can equality succeed at the faculty? Your opinion is needed!

We are committed to equal and fair cooperation between ALL. We understand equality not only as equal rights for men and women, but it also addresses, for example, the special concerns of students and employees with children, handicaps and/or international backgrounds. It also includes issues such as discrimination, domestic violence, sexual harassment, gender identity problems and difficulties in the work environment.

In order to be able to identify existing conflicts and to develop solutions, we, the Equality Commission, would like to gather opinions and opinions of the faculty: What is particularly important to you about the topic of equality? Where do you see problems? What would you like to see from the faculty, where should it become active?

Write down your ideas, thoughts and wishes on our online pinboard!

We welcome every contribution, both from employees and students. You can also post your ideas anonymously on the pinboard. Thank you very much for your help!
