Gender equality and family-friendly policies
The implementation of gender equality and diversity policies is a strategic and cross-sectional task as well as a substantial guiding principle for the objectives and actions at all participation institutions of the CRC 1371.
The CRC 1371 has established a Gender Equality Team (GET) to be the key contact for all questions regarding gender equality issues and family policies.
The GET consists of 2 members of the CRC who are supported by the Coordinator and the CRC office of CRC 1371.
They are responsible to enforce the principles of gender equality within the CRC and to monitor all internal processes, such as transparent recruiting practices, especially in the IRTG, as well as unconcious gender bias (e.g. the usage of gender-appropriate language).
Individual coaching is encouraged for CRC female members and male members with a family. The Stabsstelle Chancengleichheit of TUM is our partner for individual coaching. Possible topics are:
Career planning - Development of strategies for the own professional biography - Your role as a scientist - Personal motivation profile for leading positions - Obstacles in our career path - Stress management - Work-Life Balance - Compatibility: family and science
Your contact person is Anja Quindeau, who will handle your request confidentially and will not discuss your issues with CRC associates. She will contact the coach and organize a coaching session for you, which will fit into your time schedule.
The gender program funds 4 hours of coaching; more may be funded depending on individual circumstances.
Network meetings for female scientists
We hold the meetings regularly, every first Thursday of the month, alternating between 8:30 am in the morning and 6 pm in the evening to give all those who are interested the opportunity to attend the meeting once in a while.
The network meetings are a joint action of the SFBs 1321, 1335, 1371, 824 & TRR 267.
Please check the topics and details for our next meetings on the event colum (right side) of this website.
Any suggestions for further topics are always welcome, just drop your CRC coordinator a line.
There is no registration necessary, but, if possible, we would be happy to get a short e-mail to facilitate organization. We are looking forward to meeting you, identify and discuss common interests and invite you for snack and a drink.
