Gender & Sexual Orientation

The Gender Equality Officers

The Equal Opportunities Officers at Viadrina support the equality of all genders and therefore also explicitly aim to promote and support inter* and trans* persons at the university. The Chief Gender Equality Officer provides support, for example, with questions about inclusive language, changes in personal status and the amendment of documents. She is also the contact person in cases of discrimination or harassment based on gender or sexual identity. The Gender Equality Officers receive suggestions and complaints, provide support if needed and offer advice - if requested, also confidentially or anonymously.
