Gender Equality


We actively support gender equality and equal opportunities by offering the following measures to our CRC scientists, many of them in close cooperation with the TUM school of medicine Coordination Office for Equal Opportunity and Career Planning (KeCK)(link is external).

We offer demand-orientated coaching sessions, workshops and seminars on diverse topics such as leadership, communication, conflict management and many others. Whenever possible, the events are offered in English.
Because women are underrepresented at the management level in science and academia, career advancement measures designed to promote gender equality can only be funded if they benefit women.

Our next workshop "Elevator Pitch" will take place in July 2021. For more information please contact SFB1335.med@tum.de(link sends e-mail).
