Working basis

What determining factors are shaping gender equality at universities today? The statutory basis found in the Hessian Equal Rights Act (HGIG) has been extensively broadened in the past years through the German Research Foundation’s research-oriented standards on gender equality and the requirements set down by the Programme for Women Professors of the Federal Government and the German States. In addition to the statutory basis, other requirements have arisen which have a significant impact on gender equality at institutes of higher education and in science.
