The promotion of a diverse culture is at the heart of the work of the women's representatives. Therefore, the women's representatives try to summarise tips for a gender-equitable language and to support research and teaching of gender studies.

Important fields of work of the women's representatives at the University of Bamberg are:

Gender-fair language

Through the women's representatives of the University of Bamberg or with their support, numerous research papers related to gender studies have been published in the meantime.
