Equal Opportunity & Diversity in the CRC1315
Existing institutional measures, introduced (2018-2022), and new (2022-2026) measures
Our CRC supports the DFG’s mission to strengthen measures for diversity and inclusion in equal opportunity frameworks of funded projects. The featured image above shows equal opportunity and diversity measures available in our CRC1315’s participating institutions (black), as well as measures implemented during the first funding period 2018-2022 (blue) and those planned for the CRC’s second funding period 2022-2026 (red).
At the CRC’s kick-off retreat in Schorfheide in November 2022, a dedicated brainstorming session was introduced by A05 postdoc Clarissa Whitmire and moderated by CRC1315 speaker Matthew Larkum. In the lively and open discussion that followed, there was general agreement that new measure should also aim to attract young researchers, and therefore address the areas of “recruitment, retention, promotion and training”. To keep the discussion alive, @members should contact the Coordination Office with further suggestions.
