Page Content


At TU Berlin we consider equality and diversity as key management tasks of the Executive Committee. Thus the Vice President for Strategic Development, Junior Scholars, and Teacher Education is responsible for the ressort "Equality and Diversity". According to a horizontal control logic equality and diversity are also regarded as a cross-sector tasks which is why the aims and strategies of numerous actors and organizational units are implemented on a central and decentralized level. To be always up-to-date we regularly gain new research-based impulses by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Women and Gender Research (ZIFG).
