Each faculty of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum is to have honorary Equal Opportunity Officers. The Equal Opportunity Officers can participate in all faculty meetings and appointment committees of the faculty, giving them the opportunity to influence the faculty’s development on every level. At the same time, they are the contact persons for all ideas, problems and matters concerning equal opportunities at the faculty. The Equal Opportunity Commissioners form the link to the higher-level institutions (Equal Opportunity Office and Equal Opportunity Commissioner of Bochum.) Each status group has the opportunity to elect a representative.
Currently Sophia Köhne (Student), Christina "Tina" Feistner (MTV), Vera Nowak (MTV) and Dr. Ivonne Möller (Research Associate) represent the faculty interests. We are happy to help in all equality issues - please send us an email.
We would like to inform you about our planned actions or projects of our faculty. Our goal: To build a network from the first year student to the secretary to the professor.
Recently we started a Moodle course "Gleichstellung Physik", where we can exchange ideas and provide up-to-date information on gender equality projects. Here we also find dates for coffee or breakfast and exchange ideas and contacts. As this is supposed to be a safe place for exchange, you will need a password to enrol in the course, so please contact us once by email. Everyone is welcome!
