Consulting and Counseling

The Gender Equality Office is always available for consultation by women early-career researchers. We can help you find suitable grants or programs for women's career development, put you into contact with other institutions or spokespeople within and beyond the University, and assist you in building your network. You can also contact us if you have been disadvantaged because of your gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, or if you have experienced or witnessed sexualized discrimination and violence.

All conversations are confidential as well as sensitive to matters of gender and diversity.
