General information:

The tasks and duties of the women’s representative are based on Section 4(2) of the Bavarian Higher Education Act: Women’s representatives keep a vigilant watch for discrimination against female researchers, teachers and students.  They support universities in their efforts to fulfill their duties to effectively implement gender equality.

At our university, the women’s representative specifically -
- Advocates for women’s interests at our university.
- Represents women’s interests in university bodies (the university senate, extended executive board, university council, faculty council) as well as in appointment committees.
- Supports the executive board in improving family friendly practices at the university and learning conditions for female students.
