Equal Opportunity & Diversity Network

The Equal Opportunity & Diversity Network at OVGU, whose mission statement commits it to the societal objective of defining and implementing equal opportunity conditions in training, education and employment, brings together the domains of equality, family, anti-discrimination and promoting young talent (Graduate Academy) under one umbrella, as well as acting as an interface for the Saxony-Anhalt Liaison Office for Gender Research & Equal Opportunities (KGC). The network was established in order to pool existing synergies and expertise more effectively in the individual areas and to increase visibility and bring into sharper focus the potential in the field of gender equality and diversity at OVGU.

The network aims to contribute to creating a prejudice-free working environment at OVGU. Irrespective of sex or gender identity, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or world view, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity, all members of OVGU should be able to participate and feel valued.

The Centre for Gender Research celebrates 40 years of research and teaching at Uppsala University, with a conference focusing on the breadth and diversity within current gender research.

When: 12 - 13 October 2023
