Women's representatives

Although the term "women's representatives" is defined by law (BremHG), the overaching goal of our activities is to advice and support all scientists and students at MARUM, as well as the director and decentralised commitees in the implementation of the legally fixed equal opportunities duty (BremHG).

The decentralised women's representatives are regularly elected by the MARUM women plenary meeting (last on 27.11.2013).
