Mission Statement

We, as the Representatives for Equal Opportunities of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Economics, and Business Administration, are the contact point for all questions and concerns about (gender-related) equal opportunity within our faculty. Much of our work impacts and is aimed at individuals who identify as FINTA (Frauen, inter Menschen, nichtbinäre Menschen, trans Menschen und agender Menschen)—that is, women, intersex people, non-binary people, transgender people, and agender people. For pragmatic reasons, we have decided to generally address women, female colleagues, female students, and female employees, even though this means that we can’t address everybody personally and every group explicitly. Moreover, we offer certain services related to counseling and non-discrimination to all genders—even if the name of our office might suggest otherwise.
