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).
- Nature Masterclasses – virtual workshop with focus on scientific writing and scientific publishing (April 2021)
- Debate training for research - How to argue productively (November 2020)
- Make an Impact: Networking and Self-Presentation (July 2020)

We help to reconcile work and family life by funding child care, home office equipment, counseling, and preferentially allocating student helper positions to our CRC's scientists on maternal/parental leave, with young children, and with relatives requiring home care.
Via the KeCK family service, we support mothers and fathers of young children in finding day care and offer after hours child care, for example during late CRC meetings or on public holidays.
The network meetings are a joint action of the SFBs 1321, 1335, 1371 and the TRRs 237 and 267. We meet on the first Thursday of every second month, at 8:30 am at the Café über den Tellerrand(link is external).
Usually, we invite guests to focus on a certain topic of common interest, e.g. reconciliation of work and family life or networking strategies. Any suggestions for further topics are always welcome, just drop us a line(link sends e-mail).
We are looking forward to meeting you, identify and discuss common interests and invite you for a snack and a drink!
Due to COVID-19, our network meetings currently are paused.
In a virtual meeting on 07 May 2020, in midst of the Covid-19-lockdown, we exchanged our experiences on "Challenges of working in home office".
On 06 February, Elke Heublein from "Working Between Cultures" gave an introduction on "Global Diversity – Working in International Teams."
Careers are made in networks, the influences of cooperations and networks for your own career are numerous. Systematically structured and regularly further developed, every type of contact can be cleverly used for personal and professional success. On 7th November 2019, Dipl.-Soz. Rose Fleck gave us a short outline of the importance of networking; Afterwards, we had plenty of time for questions, discussion and networking.
Our meeting on 12th September focused on how to combine a scientific career with kids and family planning. We invited woman scientists at different career stages who have children and were willing to share their experiences.
