Equality and Diversity Survey

Dear university members,

for some time now, we, the (deputy) officers for equality and diversity, have been there for you and your concerns in all matters relating to diversity, equal opportunities and discrimination sensitivity.

At this point, we would like to introduce ourselves once again.

In the section below, you will find more detailed descriptions of who we are and what our particular concerns are.


But first, we would like to invite everyone to participate in our survey:https://limesurvey.uni-wh.de/index.php/283342?lang=de.

It will take about 10-15 minutes to answer, and it is primarily about how the existing offerings at UW/H on the topics of equality and diversity are perceived, what your wishes and needs are, and how discrimination is experienced at UW/H, if any.

Your feedback is very important and helpful for us to tailor the university's offerings even better to existing needs. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all participants very much!

Finally, as promised above, some brief information about us - we are always happy to receive suggestions from and discussions with you! We are also available for individual consultations. So please feel free to contact us directly at any time, or also at our central mail address(gleichstellungsbeauftragte(at)uni-wh.de).
