Gender Equality in Appointment Procedures

A professor has a lot of responsibility when it comes to selecting staff members. These decisions don’t just affect the respective chair. Being involved in appointment procedures and deciding on future university employees has a lasting effect on the quality of the research and teaching carried out at the university. That’s why the University of Mannheim has created information, in German, relating specifically to appointment procedures:

Guide to appointment procedures at the University of Mannheim (Intranet, in German)

Information on gender equality in appointment procedures from LAKOG

Further impulses for equal opportunities in appointment procedures:
