FEMPOWER@MLU – Open Call

Written by

Professionalization through Coaching

In scientific management positions, women and trans*, inter* and non-binary persons (TIN persons) are still clearly underrepresented despite excellent qualifications and high motivation. With the “Professionalization through Coaching” format, the MLU therefore offers individual career planning for scientists (women and TIN persons).

The participants are supported in identifying and developing their potential and making the best use of opportunities, thus successfully realizing the path to a scientific management position. Questions about the development and genesis of a professional identity as a scientist or university professor are just as important as aspects of coping with specific qualification requirements and further life and career planning, whereby the compatibility of family and academic career also plays an important role.

DFG Emphasises Importance of Sex, Gender and Diversity to Research Projects

Written by

Statement of the Senate and website providing information for all scientific disciplines / President Katja Becker: “Reflecting on these dimensions is crucial to the quality of research”

Taking sex, gender and diversity into account in the preparation and implementation of a research project helps to eliminate blind spots and thus increase the scientific quality of the results. For instance, research into the risks of osteoporosis in men has long been neglected, however, it is now known that around one-third of men are affected and require effective treatment. Furthermore, crash test dummies, modelled on both male and female bodies, illustrate individual injury risks for each sex and help to prevent them. In a statement, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) stressed the importance of taking sex, gender and diversity into account in research projects. In doing so, it is adopting a leading role in the German research system. […]
