Gender Equality

In order to counteract the imbalance and encourage female scientists to pursue an independent career in academic research, we offer different measures to support female scientists at different career stages.

Girls Day 2022

April 28, 2022

At the Girls' Future Day on April 28, schoolgirls in grades 8, 9 and 10 could take part in the life of a female scientist. The Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2 organizes exciting experiments and interesting insights into the life of a scientist together with the TRR259 and the TRR237.

First, all organizers introduced themselves to the participating girls. Then Prof. Katrin Paeschke told many interesting things about her life as a scientist. During a laboratory tour, the girls were able to see what such a laboratory looks like.
In an experiment, Rebecca Linke (PhD student since 2021) isolated live DNA from a banana. The girls were able to carry out the experiment at the same time at home; everything they needed was sent to them in advance.
In another experiment, the girls were also able to see where bacteria are at home. To do this, they carried out a contact test a few days earlier. Together with Prof. Katrin Paeschke, the girls evaluated where in their home there was a particularly large number of bacteria.

Diversity Days 2022

May 30 - June 1, 2022

On May 31, 2022, the nationwide Diversity Day, initiated by the Diversity Charter, will take place for the 10th time. The University of Bonn is organizing the Diversity Days from May 30 to June 1 to mark this occasion. The three days are organized by the Equal Opportunity and Diversity Unit and the Vice Rectorate for Equal Opportunity and Diversity in cooperation with the Office of Family Services.

At the "Fair of Opportunities", around 20 initiatives and contact points related to diversity will be presented in the arcaded courtyard of the main building and, in addition to a great deal of information on the various projects, will also offer exciting hands-on offers. Take the opportunity to talk to the representatives of the initiatives involved and actively contribute your perspective.
