Support of Equal Opportunity

At MARUM, promotion of gender equality and equal opportunity at all levels has been a central objective for many years and is embedded in the leadership and education culture.

Our equal opportunity strategy has five specific objectives:

  1. to aim for a balance gender ratio among all researchers,
  2. to improve the gender balance in leadership positions and decision-making committees,
  3. to increase employment opportunities for female scientists in their next career phase,
  4. to increase awareness of gender bias in supervisory and staff selection processes, and
  5. to further develop a gender-balanced academic culture.
