The Gender Equality Office of the University Bonn

At the University of Bonn, the promotion of gender equality is an important strategic cross-sectional task. The Gender Equality Office advises the university and supports the implementation of the equal opportunities mandate. Furthermore the Gender Equality Office accompanies the structural and development planning of the entire organisation with a focus on gender equality. This mandate results in far-reaching fields of work and focal topics for both the central Gender Equality Officer and the Gender Equality Office, which are addressed with a differentiated range of advisory services and an extensive portfolio of measures. The central Equal Opportunities Officer and the Equal Opportunities Office are extensively networked and are in continuous dialogue with all institutions and units at the university. Through the NRW State Conference of Gender Equality Officers of Universities and University Clinics, the Gender Equality Office in Bonn is actively involved in state politics in order to be able to initiate and shape important developments at this level as well.

We are moving from 20-27 June 2024!

During this period, the Gender Equality Office can only be reached to a limited extent. For urgent matters, please contact us via e-mail.
