Equal Opportunity and Diversity
geo-Q is committed to Equal Opportunity and we do not reduce it to the usual gender question, but instead understand that it is a much wider and richer subject than is usually understood. Particularly, in our case, it includes questions of equal opportunity in a culturally diverse environment. geo-Q is committed to attract female scientists to its field on all career levels, and supports the fostering of a family-friendly working environment in the participating institutions, including dual career offers. This commitment of geo-Q is embedded in a strong equal opportunity and diversity policy that Leibniz Universität Hannover pursues.
