International Family Day on 15.05.2023

International Family Day has been around for 30 years. It was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1993 to draw attention to the importance of the family to our society on a special day each year. This year under the motto “Strong for Family Moments”.

Family is a colorful term for the diversity of life, and the Department is happy to support you and help you achieve a successful balance between family and work/study.

For any questions regarding family and compatibility with studies or work, the contact persons of the Department of Equal Opportunity and Social Diversity  and the Equal Opportunity Commissioner are available and will be happy to advise you individually on your needs.

Do you already know about the possibility to use the parent-child room in B6? Here you will find a child-friendly workplace option to bridge care bottlenecks. The university offers additional options for working hours through (ad hoc) teleworking in order to better reconcile family and career.

Networking with other parents answers many a question and makes many things easier in everyday life with a child. Feel free to take advantage of these opportunities in the parent network on MS Teams and/or come to lunch today, 15 May 2023, between 11:30 and 13 o'clock at the N-Eins Lounge N1,1 in Mannheim.

For the International Day of the Family, the Rhine Neckar Region offers various activities on the weekend around and on Family Day. Get inspired to join in with your loved ones!
