Gender Equality Controlling

The instrument of strategic gender equality controlling is used as a steering element
that serves the planning, organization and implementation of equality policies. It uses statistical analysis and a comprehensive reporting system to identify anomalies in process cycles within the context of gender mainstreaming in order to be able to respond quickly by developing suitable measures.

Gender Consulting

Our Gender Consulting team can advise you on how to develop and implement equal opportunity measures in research associations and other third-party funded projects. We can assist you with your application (for example with sketches, initial and follow-up applications), the evaluation of your research project and the implementation of the measures agreed upon during the project duration.
