Gender Equality Committee at the Faculty of Medicine
The University of Tübingen mentiones in its mission statement gender equality as a core principle, which should be pursued in all areas. The Faculty of Medicine established a Gender Equality Committee to support and achieve these goals. It consists of representatives of the professorate, doctors, scientists and students.
The committee’s aim is to accomplish an equality of opportunity for women and men in their jobs and science, increase the women’s quota, achieve family-friendly work and research terms and build a (cross-)regional network of female doctors and scientists.
