TU Berlin is currently intensifying the discussion on the topic “diversity”. Societal developments, like the demographic change, the aspiration for lifelong learning and the increased numbers of refugees, are forming the base for this discourse. For our University, these changes are connected to chances as well as challenges. Therefore TU Berlin wants to initiate the discourse about diversity and develop a comprehensive equality-strategy. This is also foreseen in the higher education contracts.
TU Berlin wants to offer equal opportunity and freedom from discrimination to all its members. Only a university free from discrimination can offer space for personal development and unlock the full potential of all their members. Building upon the key dimensions of our diversity concept, TU Berlin wants to establish a respectful and appreciative handling of diversity. Regardless of these dimensions that will be the focus in the development of our strategy - every member of TU Berlin should be given the same opportunity for active participation.
With Equality@TUB we want to Comprehend! Connect! Change! We try mutually to sensitize for diversity and we wish to reflect what diversity could mean for our university. We initiate and support the active discussion about these topics. We want to learn what our employees in administration and technics, in research and teaching, as well as our students wish or which specific issues our strategy should address.
Therefore the department “Gleichstellungscontrolling und Zentrale Frauenbeauftragte (ZFA)” under the special direction of Vice President for international relations and teacher education, Prof. Dr. Angela Ittel, organizes the event series “Get connected…”  in the course of this and next year. In the context of different events we will engage with the constituent core dimensions of diversity. Broad participation is our aim, because what we need is the opinion of all members of TU Berlin.
Another way to be part of this process is to share your experiences confidentially  via an online form. We want to use your personal feedback and experiences to further promote real equality in the coming years. Therefore we would be grateful if you share your experiences with us.
