Diversity is a critical dimension of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Heidelberg University (Uni HD) development concepts, which include reconciliation of work and family life, inclusion, interculturality, and generation management.
Creating equal opportunities at all levels is also part of the development concept and an important goal for both institutions. We consider it a prerequisite for the success of our Cluster. Particularly, gender equality is of great concern to us.
Both institutions have defined strategic gender-equality plans to increase the proportion of women at all qualification levels, by offering gender-specific mentoring at all stages of a scientific and academic career and by establishing role model programs.
