Women's Representatives of the Faculties

The Faculty Women's Representatives can be contacted by female students, staff members, and professors of the respective faculty, as well as by female students in exchange programs and visiting scholars. They are the contact point for a wide range of gender-specific concerns and questions, such as:

  • Professional orientation and higher education career development
  • Pursuing a degree with a child
  • Advice on applying for financial support, e.g. for participating in conferences
  • Career advice (also in connection with maternity and parental leave according to the principles of the WissZeitVG)
  • Advice in connection to dependent relationships
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sexual discrimination

If necessary, the Faculty Women's Representative will refer women who seek consultation to more appropriate university information centers. The Faculty Women's Representatives see themselves as the first point of contact and cannot provide any legally binding information.
